Bumps and trees and a really nice large intermediate skewed bowl. I think there would be plenty of opportunities for interest and there certainly isn't anything limiting the OP from visiting both (or steamboat) in the same trip.

^^^ All good advice for the OP above, IMO.  

 

Yeah, Steamboat's terrain is a better fit for the OP, but CB in the south is supposed to be better off with El Nino (we'll see).   And, Mary Jane is bump heaven, but with the beetle kill the trees have been thinned and are fantastic, in addition to the intermediate bowl.  

 

Copper is ideal for the OP with alpine bowls with both black and double black runs to choose from, in addition to some of the best long blue cruisers around.

Good call. A few days at each, that would be a sweet trip. I'm looking at 3 mountain front range trip in late Feb/early March. Last time out there was Copper/Luv. This time WP/AB/Breck? depending on conditions.

@tball your video looked good. It looked like you had something to dig into up top. 

 

I know this goes against my drive to scheme, but what would y'all think about mammoth mountain, kirkwood, squaw, or grand targhee?

You did look at those four on a map I hope?  :)  I haven't been to any.

 

If you are up for traveling that much, I'd pick up one of these:

And drive a BIG loop of Taos, Aspen, Snowbird, Jackson, all tops on my fav list.

I was thinking the same thing about WP/MJ since he is a snowboarder.  WP not as much as MJ, but still more so than Copper.

 

Not sure why OP never says where he is driving from, but if I was an intermediate snowboarder with a RMSP+ pass, I'd probably focus on Copper and Steamboat, although there is quite a drive in between the two.  I would bet late Feb-very early March would be ideal for decent snow and relatively low crowds.

I'll be coming from the St. Louis area. Which means I've ridden way too much Midwest ice. That's why my big push for finding the best, most abundant, and most frequent pow. I've ridden 1, 12 inch day at Breck and I want more of that sweet sweet pow

If you do get the RMSP+, take I-70 all the way to Copper.  If you don't get your fill there, head up to Steamboat for a few days before going back to St. Louis.
