I think the Hood trip can be in addition to any of your other options.
Keep in mind, if you organize this, it does put you on the hook. It's a lot of responsibility. MPD has got his routine figured out, and he does it year after year. Things change, personalities conflict sometimes, and most of all you are relying on the weather. It sounds like to me that Mammoth is known territory for you and might be easiest to pull off. Tahoe and other spots get a bit more tricky if you are not familiar with where to go. Deals can be found no doubt.
I would also recommend looking at March for the meet. It is most often the best month every season.
