Plan B would be to go west to sleep at Beaver Creek or beyond and commute from there. I've hit everywhere in that area (except winter park) and Copper and Loveland are the best of the I-70 / Aspen resorts IMO so I'm pretty much sold on those two.
Plan C would be to go to SLC as my son skis free at Brighton. I'm just thinking summit county will have a better chance at winter conditions. If it was better than 80% or so of winter in SLC (and better than 90% no rain) it could be pushed to plan A.
