Is it snowing anywhere in the US? Where to go?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alrighty, I have the whole week of December 14-22 off and was planning to go to Mammoth for 5 days. I've been there on 2 trips already (we have season passes) and it was fun but I want to get some variety and get in some trees. The problem is I need to find some place with both quality and quantity as far as snowfall goes. I'm willing to wait until the last minute and get my air tickets at Hotwire.

Does anybody have any info? Anyplace you know about that is worth going to? Steamboat seems to be getting some snow but still have only 1/3 of the mountain open. Utah doesn't seem to be rocking yet either. Maybe I'll just have to save my $$ and vacation time. I'm not just gonna piss the $$ away for no reason.

OK, has anybody been to Vail lately? Is the coverage as good as it looks on the webcams? They are reporting over 5000 acres open for skiing. It may be a good early season option...

I have heard that Southren Colorado and New Mexico have gotten some good snow. might want to check Crested Butte, Wolf Creek, Durago or Taos NM web sights. My Nephew got back from Wolf Creek just after Thanksgiving and had a great time. And your right the Snow Gods aren't being vary kind to us here in Utah.

Yeah, if Utah would get crushed with one big storm it would be worth the 12-13 hour drive...especially since we have a timeshare over in Prospector Sq.

Before moving to Utah I lived in Encinitas. The Drive here isn't all that bad. Flying into Salt lake City and getting to Park City is a breeze. I'm making peace with the Gods of Snow 100" in 24 hours is all I'm asking for.

I would check out silverton mountain, if you are an expert skier. It is $99 a day, but the entire mountain is guided, and limited to something like 25 skiers a day. Pretty much poor mans heli-skiing. They have already recieved over 100 inches of powder (that was from before thanksgiving).

It is near durango, CO. www.silvertonmountain.com I really want to check this place out.
