The 2018-19 Ski Thread - No friends on a powder day

Last season's thread - https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...d.php?t=812953

I've got two significant trips planned for this year so far. At Xmas we're headed to Whitefish Montana to celebrate with my SIL's family, with a possible side trip to Fernie for a few days. Our regularly scheduled Feb ski vacation looks like it might be back to Banff to hit some new mountains, mainly Revelstoke. And I could possibly get a bonus day in November at Ski Dubai, for no other reason than to put a Mad River Glen sticker somewhere in the facility.

So, who's thinking winter?!

Always thinking winter
Probably a trip to Park city. I have been invited to go join some friends in Chamonix for a bit of a boys trip. Working on the negotiations with my wonderful wife. If we don't do PC may try for something a bit closer in Colorado

Fall is here in Telluride already. After 25 years here, we're decamping to Bozeman, so Bridger Bowl and Big Sky this winter! I've skied Big Sky a long time ago, but Bridger will be all new. Hiked up it last week, and it's hard to tell with no snow on it, but the uppers are STEEP. Scheduled for the annual Heli trip to Crescent Spur, BC last week of January with an old friend. Hopefully we don't jinx the snow for Montana. Last year truly stunk in SW CO.

Is this limited to two-plankers only? I can hold my own on a snowboard, but primarily a skier.

No major trips planned for the winter, but you never know! Mainly looking forward to day trips to Heavenly, Kirkwood, and Northstar.

Looking forward to reading others' adventures here.

I have no objections to changing the thread title to Ski/Ride. Should I send the request in? It's all sliding on snow (or wet rocks and slippery grass).
