I'm going this Sunday for my birthday since there is actual snow in the mountains now. Probably to Badger Pass in Yosemite Park because they give me a free lift ticket on my birthday. Not the most exciting or challenging place to ride, but the scenery is nice and there is stuff for the non riders/skiers to do in the area while I'm on the slopes plus it's only a few hours away so it can be done as a day trip.

We have some snow in Tahoe, but not much, and it's the terrible Sierra Cement at a lot of places. I'm hoping we have a huge storm soon so I can go snowboarding. I'm not going to spend a ton of money for just ok conditions.
"Ski Country" of Western New York and parts of Northwest Pennsylvania have been sketchy at best so far this season. I have only made it out twice due to not only a busy schedule but inconveniently rainy weather. Thinking decent conditions after a cold week of snow with supposedly about a foot in the last few days plus snow-making, I ventured to my local stomping grounds, the quaint Peek n' Peak, who just barely got up to 100% open. Let's just say "Packed Powder" even with grain of salt expectations was a very hard pack with some ice skating rinks, potholes, and even sink holes mixed in. The lack of steepness of the resort keeps every trail manageable, but you just find that conditions are highly variable and in the most unexpected places. After several years of season passes to a small local resort you would think the typical "trouble spots" would be known, but both times this year have been new adventures with the variable conditions. All I ask for is a few small storms to keep the slopes consistent without making the country roads on the way to the resort treacherous.
At least the ice provides some thrills that can match or exceed coaster intensity .
I live in Switzerland, about 20min from two mid-size Ski Resorts away and we often go there. Even if we have now snow and the Holiday break is here, I didn't went skiing yet, because first I felt sick and now the weather is rainy! But we still have 2 months time till the snow leaves us!
