I am just going to throw this question out and to see what people will say?
I ask this for a selfish reason. I'll visit Whistler/Blackcomb & Lake Louise/Sunshine in Feb. and then Alta in April (VT in Jan.) That leaves me a gap month in March. So I am contemplating Snowmass/Aspen. I am an adv. beginner and I heard many good reviews about Snowmass. But I am hesitate to solidify my plan because last season had min. snow in the West Coast.
I bought MCP and snowmass/Aspen is covered by MCP, another reason for visiting Snowmass.
(If I do go, I may only be able to spend 4-5 days including weekend due to limited vacation time....).
