Yeah... I know you're probably stoked to try out a new mtn/area, but don't. I had plans a few weeks ago to hit up Tahoe for SnowGlobe but cancelled and drove up to Targhee/Jackson instead. Both were money, and they're both received a couple big storms since I went.
I was hoping to check out Squaw this year but that trip is going to have to wait... paying Squaw prices to ski what little they have open on such a crappy snowpack is just throwing money out the window. We aren't much better off in Utah but it's at least colder here.
