I've seen trips on the vacation discount sites pretty cheap lately. For example Jackson Hole 7 nights with airfare, car, hotel around a grand (cheaper if you split up hotel and car rental with your friends). Then lift tickets are $100 per day. So, $200-250 or less per day for everything, plus food and stuff. You can do Utah for about the same or cheaper (lift tickets are pretty cheap at some of the resorts--Brighton and Solitude lift tix are only about $60-70). Summit County area can be done for a little more (search for epic pass info if you want to plan ahead for next year, probably going to get one myself).
Also worth checking out early/late season deals--I have ridden near snorkel-deep Wasatch pow first week of December before.
Doing Jackson Hole next week for 6 nights, 5 days and it is only running me about $1,300, plus food and beer--but I'm using miles to get out there (flights are going for under $300 lately and they have some kind of deal where you can get $200 back on your flight if you book through JH).
Man, I used to go to Snowshoe all the time also. I don't know how much it costs you to drive up there, but a plane ticket out west only costs me about twice the cost of fuel roundtrip from Fairfax to SS. Plus Cupp and Shay's would be about a weak intermediate slope most places out west.
