Smile Help me plan my Great Northern Adventure!

Later this year, sometime in December, I’m going to snowboard my way up the Pacific Coast, starting in the Tahoe Area, then to Oregon and Washington, finishing up in Whistler.

My plan now is to spend X-mas on the slopes and the same on NYE and New Years Day. I really want to try great areas that have a mix of trails, as my fiancée (will be my wife by the time we leave!) like the more mellow Green trails and I like everything but!

Here is the plan:

12/22 & 23 Sierra at Tahoe or Northstar (been to Northstar)
12/24 Travel to Oregon
12/25 & 26 Mt. Hood (Been there, is there anything better?)
12/26 PM Travel to Washington
12/27 & 28 Crystal Mountain (better choice? Seasonal Roads?)
12/29 Travel to Canada
12-30 to 1-2 Whistler

I’m a bit concerned about going early in the season (for California) should I reverse course and hit Whistler first? What about the resorts? Here’s the route map:

Linky to Google Maps

I have a window of a few days on either side, but that’s the best time for me to get out of work and mix in holidays.

Thanks for your input!!
