Some areas get more snow than others, there isn't a powder resort, just pick a location and go, it's hit or miss wherever you go. Your gunna have a chance for pow in Tahoe Utah or Colorado.

Powder only comes with storms, and the amount/quality is highly variable, depending on temperature and moisture content. No storm = No powder. The best way to get powder is to chase storms, which is impossible when you set a specific vacation date. Either you plan your trip to be flexible and at a moment's notice or you simply run the risk of the weather not bringing powder. No such thing as guaranteed perfect pow anywhere.

Dude wherever you go you will find powder if it snows. If you are so concerned about pow then make a road trip out of it or don't book your ticket until like less than a week out really next day would be better. That way you could chase a storm or wait until a dumping occurs. Don't worry so much no matter what conditions are like they are better here than they are in NY I promise that.

hahahaaa, partly true...slugs not snails. btw if you want to ride pow you got to have steeps...otherwise you are swimming. btw there is a shuttle from bham to baker on weekends and holidays and hitchhiking is easy.
