I moved to US a month ago and already geared up for a skiing trip. Now, I need to find a spot - what I'm looking for is powder, decently steep terrain and preferably not too many folks on the mountain. I'm staying in Houston so anywhere I go, I need to take a flight, thus any spot is good. I've heard of some of the locations, like Alta, Mt Baker, Stevens Pass, Silverton Mt, Tahoe Lake...Alyeska..?? There are probably thousands more. What would you recommend?
PS. Has to be on US territory, so anything in BC is out of range this year.
