I'm 35 miles away from my resort. Head to the NW. Oregon and Washington are killer!Sheeeesh!!! I am dying to go but I can't find lodging for under $300/night. I've tried Vail, Taos, Tahoe, Mammoth, even Vermont (yech, I hate eastern "snow"). If you know of a good (i.e. reasonably priced) place, please let me know!!
Mt. Bachelor, Mt, Hood, Mt Baker, there are so many good places I couldn't name them all.
You can find a nice Hotel in Bend for $40 a night. Mt Bachelor has really good skiing and snowboarding.
Mt Hood is open now and you can find lodging for under $100 close by but if you don't mind driving 45 minutes you can find lodging for under $50
There are a bunch of resorts in WA state too. Again, nice lodging is cheap. Mt Baker is a legendary snowboarding spot. Deep powder all Winter is common.
