During late December, it might be difficult. But it looks like we're having a dry winter so far.

For winter riding, try anywhere in Santa Cruz (Wilder Ranch, the Demo, or UCSC). This was recommended to me as much of the trails on the Penninsula tend to be very muddy at that time.

I'm not sure how Skeggs holds up, but hopefully it's ridable at that time of year. This is the first season I'm doing any winter riding in a few years, and I haven't done any winter riding in the Bay Area in years.
Rockville in Fairfield holds up very well when it rains. In the Peninsula, quite a few trails get closed after it rains.

I guess you don't have enough information. It all depends on the budget. By car maybe look at Arizona/ Nevada, maybe even Southern CA, lots of desert down there.

Vegas has a downhill park as well as regular trails. I would recommend Vegas. Get on the Nevada board and start asking for trail locations. Make sure you check out red rock canyon.

You could ride three days in vegas no problem If you want to go for five days you'd have to add something. Gooseberry Mesa is 2 hours away, but cold and maybe snowy. Phoenix is a bit further, but warm. Lots of riding there too. If you skipped Vegas and went to Phoenix and Tuscon you could ride for five days straight easy.
