You could always come to sf,ca. Then you could go surfing in the morning hit the ski slopes in Tahoe for the afternoon!

Nothing wrong with Delaware, it is a place to incorporate.

Big Sky is fabulous! Skied there last year and loved Ben though they had a bad snow year.

Some great recommendations (esp Jackson and Telluride) but given the time of year and if you are flexible, I would see what areas have snow and book there just before you go.

The drive between Moab and Telluride is one of my favorite stretches of road in the US and ripe for exploration.

The snow in Telluride won't be decent until mid-December.

If Telluride is too glitzy and touristy for you, I suggest Durango and Purgatory, now called Durango Mountain or some stupid shit.
