The northern coast mountains (ie: Alaska down to Whistler) usually fare
really well in an El Nino year.  In 98-99 Whistler saw almost 650".  During
the same time Mammoth and Tahoe were also being blasted.

I know first hand- Briar and I were in Whistler the first week of March in
1999 and saw new snow every day.  I think it snowed about 75" in the alpine
while we were there.  The tree wells were almost scary.
