We're always interested to hear of lesser-known/less-publicised resorts staying open late (sometimes just for weekends), so please reply here if you know of any!
Interesting combination of wind flows; bringing the moisture from different directions at different times, with varying air temperatures so the rain/snow line's very difficult to predict and will vary a lot - but your upper slopes should be good!
