Where to vacation?

Where would you go for 2 weeks in late Feb or early March within the US for vacation? Just wanting blue/ Blacks and some powder of course. I could care less about parks.

This has been a weird season. If the "weather" guys are correct, Utah, the usual Colorado (summit country, Vail, Winterpark) spots, Montana, Idaho, and the PNW (Washington, Oregon) should be great at that time.

Right now, New Mexico (Taos), and Southern (Wolf Creek, Silverton) have been firing and have by far the best conditions in the US right now. I've been down to Wolf Creek a few times and it's mid winter there. Right now it could be a record year in that region.

Thanks man! My wife is hooked on Breck but I would like to try somewhere new but close to an airport like most UTAH resorts. Big SKY is also anotheer option we are considering.

I would highly recommend waiting a little longer to decide on where to go, like kill said this season has been so weird.

You really can't go wrong with the big ones in Colorado, same with Utah, easy access and (usually) getting drowned that time of year. I've never been to Big Sky, but it's supposed to be killer, obviously Jackson, PNW is a no-brainer early spring time. For the sierras, Mammoth/Tahoe can be rad - not really a fan of Tahoe personally but there are some good ones (Kirk, Squaw etc.) If it was up to me, I'd head strait for interior BC. I'd personally do everything to not hit the same resorts as you previously had.


Basically - Follow the weather my friend.


EDIT:

Oops, missed the"United States" part

Pending weather here's my top choices.

PNW (Mt. Baker)
Jackson
Big Sky
