I went last year at this time and have been holding off on booking anywhere because of the lack of snow. With this storm and the storm next week, I am booking Alta tomorrow for Dec 13 to 18. I also hear that Southwest is having a huge systemwide DING fare sale for December travel. It starts at 9am tomorrow and runs til Tuesday. Looks like Alta got 17" today and is expecting up to 25" more by Sunday night.
