I know this doesn't answer your question but have you thought about Europe? The deals are much better for the Alps than what it would cost you to ski out west.

Also, it just seems so darn romantic.

I second GOTRAVEL's suggestion for Europe!
I can not think of a more romantic setting than Lech, Austria for the combination of Christmas and Honeymoon!

Ahhh the Alps!!!

I second GoTravel's recommendation. We switched to skiing Europe about five years ago and I wouldn't swap our annual March trip for a FREE week at any of the North American resorts. We've sampled Switzerland, Austria, and Italy so far and are in the early stages of looking into France for this ski season. The last place we skied (Cervinia/Zermatt) had over 7,000' of vertical - you can't find anything approaching that over here.

Hah! John beat me to it. So, I guess I'll THIRD GoTravel's recommendation.

Anonther vote for Europe but some caveats: pick a high altitude resort to be assured of snow. Some of the prettiest places, like Gstaad, aren't quite high enough to be assured of good snow at Christmas and New Year's (especially considering the blistering heat wave we're having right now that is melting snow even on the highest Alps!!). Klosters (Switzerland) and Lech (Austria) are more likely to have good snow.
If you decide to consider Europe, check the web site www.ski-europe.com
Full of very helpful advice, including a "ski matcher" questionnaire that you fill out to pick the ski resort most suited to your ability, apres-ski interests, budget.
However, if you do decide to stay in the U.S., perhaps it would be better to go to someplace like Deer Valley where the number of lift tickets are limited and it won't be quite as crowded.
