Year Round Boarding? (What if money was NO object?)

What with the Crappy snow season here in MI., (...or most places this year for that matter)

I've been doing some daydreaming about how & where I would go if I could afford to chase snow ALL year long.

So I thought I'd ask,.. If money wasn't the problem, What would your itinerary for the year be? Where would you go & when to chase POW Year Round??

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!

If money wasn't a problem and I were you I would get on a plane to Japan right this second and go to Shiga Kogen, Hakkoda or Niseko, Grand Furano, anywhere really. We are getting ultra dumped.

With unlimited funds, it would change every year. Summers probably New Zealand and Chile/Argentina. Winter this year I've heard Japan is siiiick, but other years, I'd want to check out Utah, Jackson, probably some AK. Although I'd also be perfectly happy riding Tahoe all winter like I do now already.
