If you feel you can swing it go to South America. Not only do they have great riding in Argentina and Chile, but the wines from down there are pretty damn good too. Plus they are cheap. Personally, I'd go to Argentina. Great meats, wine, and plenty of snow.
For America, Hood is a good bet. You could also gamble, and see if anyone starts of the next snow season with a bang. Colorado, PNW, Tahoe, and Utah, can have great early seasons. Of course you probably would have to wait until the first or second week of November.
