What's your take on the best place out of these 3 (Aspen, Sun Valley, or Jackson Hole) for skiing 2 weekends from now (1/14-18)?
My choices were limited based on the following criteria:
non-stops from San Francisco, reasonable housing availability, on the Mountain Collective pass, and not too crowded over a 3 day weekend.
I've ruled out Snowbird, Squaw, and Mammoth basically for crowd reasons, I just got back from a week in Whistler, I talked to my dad yesterday in Chamonix and he said the snow there was verging on non-existent, and Hakuba is a bit of a long trip for a weekend :-)
I like steep, and powder is always nice but I'm not trying to chase a storm, just looking for good conditions without lift lines. I'm leaning towards Sun Valley because I know it's uncrowded and the home of steep groomers, but I can be convinced otherwise.
thanks for any input,
