I think I know the answer to my question - but want some input for those that have travelled these airports.
We are going the first week of February and I'm starting to look at flights and finding some screaming good deals! Best flight times (but <$100 cheaper so not a big deal) are flying through Denver. I can avoid Denver with San Diego and/or Phoenix. We've only flown through Phoenix for Mexico with no issues and customs is a breeze.
I'm figuring it's worth the less than desirable flight times because of the possibility of bad weather in February in Denver?
