It's looking more and more like December is going to be the suck for most of the Western US. It's appearing that we'll be lucky to get into a snowy cycle by New Year's. Except for Wolf Creek, Taos, Silverton area mountains. They are getting loaded with snow. So yeah, I'd rent a place in Wolf Creek and bail on your place in Vail for the next 6 days.
Not that long of a drive if he stays there instead of Vail for the whole trip ( =
I don't see any weather coming to Wolf Creek during your stay, but I'd honestly recommend splitting your trip up a bit. You'll get bored in Wolf Creek over 6 days...... I recommend staying at the firestone cabins in wolf creek a couple or few days and spend the rest in Vail.

I rode vail yesterday and the snow was pretty good compared to what it has been like. We had a little overnight too. Things are getting scratched off by the afternoon - but that will happen anywhere next week when there are a gazillion people on the hill.
Wolf creek and Taos are both epic right now. Those are the only two i've been to this year so far. Taos just got dumped on, 15 inches for this last storm. That's on top of the 25 inches we got from last weeks storm. Its still snowing now so it looks like a 50" base by this weekend.
Wolf creek is also probably close to a 60" base at this point.
