Simply^Ride 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.

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.

I want to know of other resorts. I've done tons of research about Mt. Hood because it gets mentioned in half the threads now.

killclimbz Is that full operation or 100% of the inbounds terrain open? I am talking the latter. Also my bad if they are 100% open.

killclimbz I can't think of anywhere, even with Tony Crocker's list that is 100% open by mid November except Wolf Creek. It's not a sure bet, but 4 out of the last 5 seasons it has been. I would try to make your trip as last second as possible, as any place during that time can have squat.

Simply^Ride Personally I have visited the Colorado rockies, but my first trip is in January and not November. That said I usually hit Vail, Beaver Creek, Cooper, LoveLand and Keystone. The best snow can be found in Vail, or at least the last two seasons the snow has been great there

donm3ga Which US resort do you guys usually hit up first?

Wolf Creek by Thanksgiving is often 100% open with a 40-60" base. That place just gets hammered with snow. It's the best early season bet out there.
BAM! I'd personally choose Wolf Creek but Love or A-Ba are always a good bet by November.
