I plan on going to Mt. Hood in the summer. I'd just like to hear of other possibilities.
I guess thats about as much advise as you can get, we have suggested a lot of different resorts in many states. To be honest a trip in November is kind of scary, specially with all the money that would to be dumped into it. What I would do is wait until a month before and search for weather activity, that way you don't waste your money.
To be honest I would be hesitant to plan a trip before January first, if am dumping more than $1500 into it. But I am sure that there are going to be plenty of resorts open for that time, the thing is that finding the best snow conditions is going to be a bit complicated, unless you wait till 2 weeks before to buy the airline tickets.
