Hi

This year the wife and I are thinking of going on a fortnights skiing trip in either america or Canada. We are thinking of late november or early to mid december, we would like a bit of advice as to where would be open at this time of year and also where the best resorts are. Any help would be good. Also what the weather could be like so as to have an idea of type of clothing required etc.

Thanks

Good luck
Busher

The state motto of Utah is not "Greatest Snow on Earth" for nothing.

We are having a banner snow year this year.

Cannot beat Utah for skiing.

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

That is a bit early in the season for the ideal conditions.

Whistler is always open by late November. Conditions could go either way, some seasons start out great with lots of snow while others don't.
As far as terrain goes, I don't think there's anywhere else in North America that can match Whistler/Blackcomb for size or vertical.

I miss skiing

My ankle is no good anymore though. I don't think I would make it 50 yards before it snapped off.

I sure would love to climb up the hill and grab an inner tube though. I miss the snow. GA winters suck mostly, though I guess they are better for helis.

Deer Valley, Salt Lake City, Utah
Just got back from Deer Valley in Utah, snow was incredible. Actually almost too much snow, some resorts like Alta, Snowbird, and others in the lower valley were closed due to the amount of snowfall. However, I travel there usually once a year to ski and cant tell you how nice Deer Valley is, personnel, lodging, convieniece to ski areas are all very accommodating. Good luck and good skiing wherever you choose to go.

All the places sound great but is the late November early to mid December a good time to try to go out or is it as a previous post said, a bit early in the season?

Thanks for your input guys, and hope you had a great time in the snow, I am hopefully going out to austria in the near future to have a go at snowboarding, But the pistes out there in America and Canada, look fantatstic in comparison.

Good luck

Just make sure you book rooms well in advance as they seem to book up fairly quickly.
