what are your thoughts on steamboat compared to the other mounts? i haven't heard/read too much about it.
I don't know enough about the other mountains to give you a knowledgeable opinion of them all.... I have quite a few buddies that have been to different mountains... The few that were with me for the steamboat trip said they've never had skiing/boarding like it is there right now... All the mountains have some sort of site that tells you the year to date snowfall and etc... That could help you with some of your research... I did have a local at steamboat tell me that it's the most snow he's seen in 10 years...
