OP, Bring some base layers. It'll be cold. But they are getting a little bit of snow. Drink lots of water before going because you run the risk of greater dehydration withthe eleveation and cold, combined. Other than that, go with some excitement and you'll be fine. Have a look at the trail maps so you get an understanding of the mountain before you go.
If you are a degenerate Gambler, then think of it this way. You have two hands to play poker with right now, considering February........Summit Co (Vail/Breck) Is like a 5/6 suited.....there is some potential, but it doesn't look great. Tahoe is like a 3/8 off-suited....unless you want to bluff, why would you play that hand?
Take your pick. Squaw and Alpine COMBINED are boasting 200 acres of open terrain. We have a resort in PA that has more open terrain than that!
Go back to CO.
