Dilemma: Where to go?

Was able to snatch amazing deal from JetBlue NYC - SEA $96 R/T on Superbowl weekend. Flying to Seattle early morning on Thursday and back to NYC on Monday. I was hoping to go to Whistler and ride there. However, looks like current conditions are bad.

So, question where would you go from Seattle to ride for 3 days.
Any advice much appreciated.

P.S. willing to drive for up 7-8 hrs from SEA.

How the hell did you find that??? I'm usually looking to do the opposit fly from Portland/Seattle to NY but thats ridiculous. Outside of that look obviously at Bachelor as it's much closer and gets the best snow totals. No place is great in the PNW right snow sadly but Bachelors probably been grabbing the most snow.

That was just an opposite deal. JetBlue offered $96 R/T flights to either Denver or Seattle from New York. When you think about it: Broncos and Seahawks are coming to New York, so people from Seattle and Denver do, but not in an opposite direction. At least I think about it this way.

Thanks for the tip. Currently thinking about Revelstoke, BC. Long ride, but looks like they will get at least few inches of snow..

like I said, facepalm yourself, I'm on your team.

maybe u will get one of them big dumps.

2 weeks ago you were in Vail and you weren't like "hmm, CO is firing this year...i should hurry back, theres like 100 other kickass mtns besides vail..."?

I mean at least they get those crazy maritime dumps so maybe u get lucky, but theyve been getting epically skunked this year, as in ...golf...

I'm in Bend. Bachelor has tons of terrain open and there's snow everywhere but it's mostly groomer days due to freeze/thaw up here until we get another storm. If you decide to come this way hit me up.
