Snow, more snow and lots of snow. You can get on snowtel for last seasons totals to give you an idea for each month. Feb last year, we had 40-90 inches depending where you were. 144" tracks are on the short side unless you plan to stay on the trails. The lodge has a facebook page and they do answer questions. Later in the season avalanche becomes a greater concern with the mixed snowfall and temperatures.

Late February is ideal IMHO. Best chance of pow with a good base

It's usually good powder in January - but lots of "hidden treasures" with a weak base.

We've had good riding all 3 of those times... Even in December.
