It's funny about snow and skiing. When I worked at an Eastern resort I discovered that it didn't matter what the conditions were like on the mountain, we would draw crouds when the snow in the cities was deep. As far as the west is concerned, I lived out there. You will be living in the valleys with sunny 60 degree weather knowing quite well that there was a blizzard blowing in the nearby Mtn's. In fact in Southern Ca. It would rain buckets and the next day I would be walking on the beach looking at snow covered Mtn's where a ski resort was. I enjoyed it in a way. Leave the snow in the mountains has been a comment I've heard often.
