What level of skier are you and how long do you plan on skiing?

Salt Lake City is a good option. Several resorts (nine or so) in the area, good transportation, good airport. You can stay on the cheap in downtown, drive up, or catch a shuttle. Only problem is getting caught in town on a big powder day and the canyon roads closed.



Canadian exhange rate is good right now. Whistler, Lake Louise.



Jackson Hole is rocking.



Reno/Tahoe are light this year.

Uh... this year you can't go wrong. Everywhere is epic. Colorado, SLC, Tahoe, Jackson, Whistler... you name it, they've got amazing conditions. Out here in CO I've skied 17 days so far this season, and all but two have been powder days.
