I've heard that most of the dumps are in Dec. or march. Is this true? Any info on lodging would be helpful as well.
Thanks in advance, art
The answers to any question about snow quality (for any resort anywhere) have to include the double caveat that nobody can predict the weather and we're talking averages.
I think it's probably true that March has the most snowstorms, but because of warmer temperatures the snow quality may not stay good as long as it does in Jan/Feb/Mar. I don't think THIS December is the best bet unless this alleged storm we're going to get this weekend actually amounts to something. Otherwise, there isn't a huge amount of snow over there yet. Personally, I would plan my trip anytime in February other than President's Week.
I think your son should be in a good position to help out with lodging suggestions.
