Memorial Day last year I skied at Mammoth
June 10ish I skied at Mammoth (only one run left)
July I skied at Mt Hood
August I skied for a week at Mt Hood
Sept I tried but the Palmer snow field at Hood had melted (a first)
A-basin also is open often into June
I've often thought about South America. In addition to Portillo and the others around Santiago, I hear good reports from people that have gone to Argentina.
The thing I went to in August at Mt Hood was the Atomic Masters Race Camp. You ski till noon (it's all race training - the Palmer Snow field is just this big rectangle of snow that they divide into lanes that camps rent. Then do summer things each afternoon and evening like windsurfing, white water rafting, golfing, hiking, mountain biking. It was a lot of fun.

Considering the instruction each day and the fact the fee includes all the activities and most of the food, it's a real deal.
Here is a link to an album of pictures from the August Camp on Mt Hood.http://www.fototime.com/inv/FDBCF80B46D8B27
