“Wait un­til about a week out to nar­row your re­gion and don’t de­cide on the spe­cific moun­tain un­til two or three days be­fore­hand, when forecasts are gen­er­ally re­li­able,” says Joel Gratz, the found­ing me­te­o­rol­o­gist of OpenSnow.com, a web­site with pow­der-day forecasts for the en­tire coun­try. FreshyMap.com, another great tool, uses real-time snow­fall data and weather map­ping to de­ter­mine which ar­eas have the high­est “freshy fac­tor,” mean­ing which re­sorts will still have pow­der by the time you show up.
