If youre talking about driving thats incorrect.

I would honestly head to Baker looking at the edits coming from there..... Stupid Deep. What more do you want?

Brighton doesn't have much open FYI and the crowds are rather annoying on the weekend/holidays since not much is open

Is it?

New York, NY to Chicago, IL - Google Maps
790 miles vs.

Denver, CO to San Francisco, CA - Google Maps
1270 miles

Flying, Denver to San Francisco is 967 miles, whereas Chicago to NY is 740 miles.

The Cottonwoods have had a little over a foot in the last 48 hours and it is still snowing. Another foot to come later this week (hopefully).

Snowbird is opening the Tram on Thursday and chickadee and mid gad on Wednesday. I would venture a guess that both resorts open a ton more terrain for the holiday weekend. They have had 71" so far this season.

Wow my bad read that incorrectly. You're right. Flying it's shorter as well.

If you're going to come to CO, I'd suggest Steamboat or Crested Butte. They've been getting the goods lately. Summit County has largely been getting skunked, so unless you want to ride crowded as fuck scraped off hardpack, I'd pass. You'd basically be coming across the country to ride east coast type conditions.

The PNW is about to get nuked. I'd go there.
