The wife and I just got back from a trip to Utah and got a good bite from the Powder Bug. We did one run on the Lightning Ridge Snowcat at Powder Mtn and hiked up James Peak for a solid 1,500+ vertical feet of untracked powder. Two days earlier they got 17-24". It was awesome! One of the best runs that we've ever had and we need our next fix...
We're planning on going back to Utah at the end of March and I'm wondering if anyone has feedback on Park City Powder Cats (PC) or Powder Mountain Powder Safari (PM). Specifically, how are the guides, avalanche danger, what's the terrain like, how much vertical, is it worth it if it hasn't snowed in a week or so?
PC: $400pp, 42,000 acres, 8-12 runs per day, 8,000-12,000 vertical feet (is each run only 1,000 vertical?)
PM: $350pp, 3,000 acres
