Other spots with good access. Colorado/Denver areas, Tahoe (Reno/Sacramento for airports), Seattle and Portland spots. You'd probably have to work a little harder on lodging and logistics in the PNW. Lift tickets are some of the most reasonable in the US though. Bozeman MT would be another place to consider. Not sure if Idaho has good airport access to their good spots or not.
Mammoth has its own airport and shuttle service as well so it is pretty accessible. It's also a mid point in CA since Tahoe is a little further north. BUT I have a friend who works on the Tahoe mountain so maybe that could be something to work out with him. Like I said, I don't organize well lol
