Sorry it has been a couple of days, as far as where I ski, here it goes:
1) I have an Epic Pass, so that allows me to go to Arapaho Basin, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, Heavenly, and North Star (Tahoe)
2) I have a pass for Telluride
3) My brother and I go to Aspen at least a half a dozen times per year
4) Every once in a while I will go to the following, as I follow the powder: Wolf Creek, Monarch, and Kendal
5) I have a pass at Whistler
6) I have a pass for Lake Louise (Banff area)
I think I have listed everyone. On to the report.
As far as reports go thus far. Breckenridge is not that good right now, as they have had some fresh powder to put on top of the man made, but it is still pretty weak.
Wolf Creek has already gotten over 100 inches this year, but I have only been there once. Foolish on my part, as it would have been a better investment of my time than Breckenridge for opening weekend.
I understand that some people go to their local ski resort, but living in SoCal, I really follow the fresh powder. I have a job where I only work three days a week, and I am on sabbatical for the next few months, so that is why I am able to do this. For individuals that only have the weekends to work with, I understand that there are limited opportunities to chase the best runs at the time.
Anyway, I will be happy to put something out here each weekend, and as I have information (aka am making my decision as to where I am going to go, and why).
I hope everyone is having a great week :), and that you have something fabulous planned for this weekend. :)
As for this weekend, it is looking like weak bases in Summit County (CO) will get some much needed fresh snow. Fingers crossed, as I am relying on the weather report, and we all know how wrong they usually are. :) Vail opens in about 37 minutes, and I am sitting in Breckenridge thinking about 13 inches of manmade vs. working on my writing. We shall see.

But those who hope in the Lord
Will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not be faint.
