Default somebody tell me where to go

so, i can fly for almost free, and i can take vacation days pretty much whenever i want. so, where is the snow at? my brother doesn't have the most money in the world, so i'd like to find somewhere that isn't super expensive and has an airport relatively close by that has delta flying to it. canada is ok too, we have passports. alyeska and mt baker are really the only two places i know of that have snow. is mt baker worth a trip even though it's smaller than most resorts out west?

AK fwiw, if you are used to riding ohio, either place will kick you in the nutz. Baker is compact but it can be technically challenging and if you do bc its a much larger area.

I've been watching Whistler a lot lately, and they're already at 115+ inches in most spots. I would recommend there, but not having ever been, I can't say for sure. A added bonus... it's HUGE!

even though i'm used to ohio, i have been out west before. i'm not trying to find tons of double blacks, but i would like a good selection of singles. i was really just wondering if baker is good enough to take a multi day trip. and do they really not have any high speed lifts?

If you have the option between Baker or Whistler, I'd say Whistler. Both are renowned in the Industry and both are getting the goods that so many of us in the rest of the 48 wish for. So much of Baker's appeal is its BC. Unfortunately, since you're from Ohio, I'm going to assume you aren't a beacon guy. I went to Baker and was relatively disappointed. The conditions blew, so that didn't play into my favor, but it takes FOREVER to get to from SeaTac.

Just my thoughts.

you are correct that i'm not a beacon guy. i will consider whistler, but my brother is probably too poor for that. does anyone know some cheap places to stay at or close to whistler?
