  • Unless you live in LA, go to Utah, Colorado, Jackson Hole or Big Sky. Great terrain, huge, but windiest area you will ever see. Lifts always closing due to wind or visibility, trapping you on one side or other of the mountain. You might not ever get to the top. No night life, if that's important to you. Hard to get to, half of flights into Mammoth Lakes get cancelled.
