Sure, with that Continental snowpack that likes to avy. Prefer to drive a little further and enjoy the Coastal pack myself. YMMV
There's ALWAYS someplace to ski in CO - you just have to be intelligent about it, read the forecasts, and dig a pit. There are avys in CA as well - try that traverse from Alpine Meadows to Squaw sometime, or hang out around Kirkwood.
Besides, the CO champagne powder will beat out Sierra Cement or Cascade Concrete any day.
