December cheap and snow?
 
It's all in the title really..

Where is a good place to go mid December where it's cheap or for deals on and there is a good chance of snow?

Cheers

December is a tough one. It can be good just about anywhere. Good being a relative term. Stuff just got going afterall. It can also be a huge disappointment.

With an El Nino season coming up, I suspect a few areas might have amazing conditions by then. Others will probably still be running their mountain bike parks.

Generally speaking southern areas do better than Northern spots during these years. Not always though.

Moral of the story? Book as late as you can. Spots like Washington areas are much easier to do last second versus the mega resort spots.

Tahoe could end up being a sneaker. Definitely a few smaller resorts up there that wont cost you $100 a day like the bigger ones. Sugar Bowl, Alpine, Homewood, Rose.

My guess is Mammoth, Tahoe, Wolf Creek, Brianhead, maybe T-ride, Crested Butte, and Monarch could have a big December. The New Mexico areas may benefit too.

I have gone Mid-December the past few years, Did Beaver Creek/Vail in 2013 and it was good and did Tahoe in 2012 and it was really good but its all luck of the draw that time of year. If you have the funds I would wait to book last minute and see who is getting snow but if you have to book in advance, Wolf Creek would be a safe bet, they always seem to get snow early season.
