If you were referrring to my comment, it is a recommendation to ski Alta/Snowbird with the nod towards Snowbird on terrain and Alta on slghtly more snow, (it seems every local says Alta underestimates and always get a little more than Snowbird). To me skiing Snowbird is just incredible for expert terrain, once you learn how to ski the mtn. That's my answer if you are sitting in your living room and ask, where can I ski in 3 weeks or 3 months from now, where I have the best chance for the best snow with good terrain.
Maybe Kirkwood comes in there as a close 2nd. Jackson, not as much snow and sun problems faces SE. Squaw - huge but more intermittent storms, sierra cement. BC, have to hit it right, only skied Whistler one trip, the terrain is great, but they have "snow and weather" problems. Irrefutable, when it's good it great, but year after year I watch these reports, talk to people whom skied there and it seems you can just as well have a yucky trip with warm weather, even rain(almost impossible at LCC in winter-just won't happen). But one good things about a skier life, hopefully, by just taking one trip a year, you can hit most of these spots and make up your own mind. (CO is not even in the running)
Baker, where's that at?<g> I know nothing, except my impression is that few make a destination trip, there must be a reason.
