Vermont or Quebec? - Which one would be better?
Colorado or Utah?
From what I've heard Alaska gets the same wet heavy snow as Whistler.

I've rode a fair bit in QC and VT and they're similar. Jay gets more snow than anywhere else in the east so I don't quite get the don't go to Vermont for powder comment.

Heard good things about Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and Montana.

I like Alberta terrain and snow, but I live here and can pick when I go to the mountains. We can get massive dumps or there may be nothing for a couple weeks.

One option would be k-pow near Calgary. It's done on a former resort but it's catboarding so you can get fresh lines from what I hear. Cost is about $300 per day.
