NoTickets I've got a CamelBak Snoblast, a new model that came out this year. It's got some kind of thermal sleeve that goes over the tubing to prevent the water from freezing. Took it up on the slopes, and the water in my tubing froze. On another day, it didn't.

So yeah, I dunno. I like the pack anyway. Got it for 60 bucks at Dick's.

C-dubbin I have a camelback bladder in my Burton Pack and when it got below 15 or so out the tube would freeze which meant no water until I went inside at the end of the day. Luckily they make an insulated tube that has a big rubber cap over the bite valve. Since I bought that....no more frozen water.

Magnum626 I think I'm gonna go with a platypus 1.8 or 2.0 litre. Now who has the best prices on them? I don't think ebay has them cheap.

So far looks like this site has the best price I've seen. Hoser by Platypus and other Bladders

I have a 2 liter Platypus Big Zip SL in mine (Platypus® Big Zip SL™ hydration system). The main recommendation I would make about a bladder is to get one that completely separates from the drink tube to make it easier to fill, re-fill and clean.... otherwise you will have to keep removing and re-installing the drink tube all the time.

They make an insulated bladder, but its probably not necessary for resort conditions. The water in the feed tube did start to freeze up on me one day, but a few minutes in a warm environment (lodge) fixed that right up.

I rode my last trip with that dakine every day. Its small enough to where you won't be tempted to throw a bunch of extra stuff in it. It has a dedicated extra goggle pocket, and a 'hanger' clip with mesh 'bag' to hold your bladder in place. I'm quite happy with it.

P.S. a 2 Liter bladder is the ideal size for the bag. It will hold a 3L, but that is more weight than I like to lug around while boarding. I usually only fill mine to 1.5L.
