Where would you go?

I've got a trip planned to Tahoe for December 2nd, but based on Squaw's weather blog it doesn't seem like there will be much going on there. I'm thinking of changing my trip to SLC, since Solitude seems to already have gotten some good snow. If you could go anywhere near a major airport (Wolf Creek doesn't work for me) on those days, where would you go? Thanks.

No question Brighton and Solitude are both worth riding right now and should get another 5-8 on Friday, see my video of Brighton in the GoPro editing thread floating around to get an idea.

Well my wife and I booked using our Southwest points, so I'm assuming I'd just change and pay the going rate for wherever I want to go. Haven't confirmed, though. What airline are you flying?

Everything except the far edges so Western Express and Mille are still closed :-( with no estimate from Brighton as to when they'll open but hopefully soon, tempted to go hike that shit.

Remember they haven't done any avy control on any of those areas. They might look good and safe but no control work has been done.

I just checked Southwest and even though prices are higher now I should be able to change. I was able to login to my account to find that out.

Understood but allot of the stuff on Mille(Skiers left) is under 33' and should be pretty safe right?
