Try http://www.liftopia.com/. It is like expedia for lift tickets, with pricing based on demand. In Lake Tahoe, you can get discount tickets for Kirkwood and Diamond Peak.

The west might have more snow but Jackson Hole is not doing that great. While my friends out there watch all the snow going to just about everywhere except there they are kinda hurting.

Sure the mountain has snow but decent powder days have been few and far between. I talked to a friend just the other night and he said it was -20F, about 2" of snow on the ground in his yard and many water pipes around the valley are freezing up due to the low insulating snow cover. So if you do go out west make sure you check the conditions and go to the right place.

He also said they were expecting some new snow on Thursday.

I just found out why it's been so warm. The Earth is at perihelion, its closest approach to the sun! The Earth as a whole is receiving 6% more energy now than it did last July, according to the Bad Astronomer.

Actually, that's not the reason. The Earth reaches perihelion at some time every year. It's always in January, and I think it's always about the same distance.

Heh heh. Somebody in the comments said that this also explains why we always gain weight around the holidays. The gut tide. Wish I could believe that too.

People who want to head West:
Up here in the Pacific Northwest is where the best conditions in N America are. Crystal, near Seattle recieved 21" of snow last night in 12 hours! Our base is now over 110", with 250" of snow fallen so far this season. Whistler, Baker, Crystal, etc. are all amazing. I know the PNW might not be on the East Coast radar screen, but it is definately worth checking out.

For Comparison:
Squaw Valley: 25"-75" base
Vail: 20"-30" (Blizzards aside they don't have much base)
Big Sky: 30"-45"
Alta: 50"
Jackson Hole:43"-50"
