This thread is two years old. Do you even internet, bro?.A lot of the best resorts are within a 2 or 3 hour flight from California. Most are direct flights as well.
Talking about Utah, Vancouver BC, and Alberta.
I live in the Bay Area and used to drive up to Tahoe every weekend ( aka, the Grind ). Nowadays, I just take a 3 or 4 day weekend per month and spend a couple of days boarding. Tahoe has a bunch of resorts, worth it IMHO to fly into Reno or Sacramento to check them out. Southwest Airlines pretty cheap if you setup your schedule right.
