I say just go to Colorado, I am. And actually at the same time as you. I to am from the south, close to New Orleans. I've been looking at snow reports on onthesnow.com and they are getting snow, just not the big dumps like the local people would like but for people like you and me, I think you will definitely be satisfied with what they are getting. Breck just got like 10" just yesterday. A-Basin is opening more and more trails everyday. Summit County is a great place to go. Yea, they are not "epic" right now but, dude they got snow. I've stayed just about everywhere in Summit County and I love it there. If it is just you and your girl, I say Breck.
