Default Choosing snowiest mountain

I am looking for any input on how to choose which mountain to head to when checking the snow report before heading out in the morning. If 4 or 5 different places are all reporting goood snow overnight, what kind of wind or storm conditions are likely to favor which mountains? I have an epic local pass and will also be going to Loveland quite a bit. I know this is probably a complicated issue and figuring the snow patterns will likely just come with a lot of experience, but also having to factor in road conditions, traffic and crowds, and driving from Golden, I was hoping there might be a few general good tips for following the snow instead of just relying on their strategically placed snow stake cams!

Theres always better snow on the west side of the tunnel.

Loveland just gets wind and ice.

At least the lifts are slow.

This guy has it all figured out, I wouldn't take this advice with a grain of salt.
