I'm in SoCal and anticipating that ill want to take a mid-year trip to hold me off till winter begins again. What areas get snow year round? I've heard Oregon and a few other places in the states? I'm actually looking for good conditions hopefully, I don't want to take a plane somewhere and be swimming in slush mid-day, I know that may be asking a bit much for a summer trip... But any input on the topic would be appreciated!

Honestly if you're looking for something in N. America with anything besides spring riding conditions you won't be finding it.

As far as I know the few N. American glaciers are the only places that will still have snow in mid-year and they're mostly used for snowboard freestyle camps. They're great if you're looking to work on your park skills, but if you're after regular piste riding I wouldn't be bothering with the trip.

You're far better off going to NZ/Aus and S. America if you want proper riding.

Last July, late july, we had a mid day snow dump on mt hood. Probably 3" of we snow came down. Kinda nice. That's a gamble though...... Spring corn riding is great.....
