the kind of terrain you want at Meadows lines aren't really that bad of an issue. The biggest shitshow is the main lodge area. S&R cliffs and Private Reserve don't require you to navigate that mess. If you can afford an extra 250 then a ski bowl night pass (any day after 3) is good to have. During the week you can get first tracks at Meadows and Ski Bowl if you play it right.
Just expect to ski when it's storming to really get the goods. Nights at Meadows, and Ski bowl can really deliver when it's nuking.
