I realize I made a mistake: Cypress is still open for downhill--until 4/11 apparently. Only the XC is closed.
4-6 inches of fresh up top today. I was on foot with my pooch, and wish that I'd brought skis.
I doubt they'll close the road. I think everyone now knows that it's pretty hard to get sick being outside with no one around. ...
I'm not sure about Cypress, but you could take a trip to Guadalajara, Mexico. It is a modern city, with a quality of life that is comparable with any town in Spain or Italy, and the prices, in general, are meager. I was on a week last month, and I with my friends liked it a lot. If you want to know more about restaurants, transport, living and in general about everything about this city you can read this review about living in Guadalajara. I think you'll like it too. Especially the vibe you feel when you're there, it doesn't pass quickly.
