Resorts with direct flights from New York and IKON pass

Don't Ikon holders get 5-7 days at SkiBig3 (Lake Louise, Sunshine, Norquay).

Go to Banff, Alberta. Access two excellent resorts. Easy shuttles from Calgary airport. Free shuttles to the hills from Banff townsite. Banff townsite is nice with lots of restaurants (make reservations on weekends). And the exchange dollar will work in your favor.

I've had great snow quality experiences in Tahoe, especially at Mt Rose and Donner Ski Ranch. When I skied in very late Spring, I've experienced the "Sierra Cement" but not in Feb-March. I *wish* there was more frequent nonstop service to Reno from Chicago. It's intermittent on United. I've determined they start this season in mid-March so I'm already trying to put something together.

Believe it or not, my sister and I had terrible snow "stickiness" issues in Park City at PCM in early March 2019. We both had to take our skis in for emergency hot waxes. That helped.

In all seriousness: If you are able to take a full week (or at least 5 days) Have you thought about going to Europe? For the various Ikon pass resorts, Kitzbuhel has super easy train transfer from Munich and even shorter from Innsbruck (easy connection via London/Amsterdam/Frankfurt), which is also good for most of the Dolomiti Superski resorts. If you can fly out of Philly, there is a direct flight to Venice, which is a 2hr transfer to Cortina or 2.5hrs to Alta Badia.

Especially because you say Deer Valley is your spirit animal, you would love it there - infinite miles of perfectly groomed intermediate cruising, amazing food. Accommodation is really good value there: perfectly nice bed & breakfast places go for 50-70 euros/night per person inc breakfast (<$1200 for a week for 2 of you.) If you go the week of March 16-23, you can stay in a 4* hotel in Corvara with a superlative breakfast for $2050, or in Selva with dinner included for ~$2400.
