Baldy was IMO the best run of the day.

Good stuff, Bushwacker! Sounds like a great trip, and a fine way to wrap up the season.

 

Are you back in Vermont now? Or will you be stopping in Colorado on the way home?

 

Best regards,

Bob

its cheaper for this period of time. Plus I hate being at the mercy of others. I have never flown anywhere to go skiing.....yet.

 

split between 2 people

 

driving

 

Gas - 600

lodging for one night -  60

 

660 bucks total

 

flying for 2 people

 

plane tickets - 1200

parking at airport  for 3 weeks - 300

SUV car rental for 3 weeks - 840

 

flying would be 2340 dollars we saved roughly 1680 dollars by driving.

 

Also I couldnt possible carry 4 pairs of skis on the plane with me, let alone clothes/gear for 3 weeks of skiing. There is no chance of lost gear while driving, compared to flying were people lose their gear all the time. I also will never have to leave a day before a storm is coming because my car leaves SLC whenever I want.

 

Put it like this my and my buddy erik will do 3 weeks in SLC for about 1500 bucksfor everything  travel, tickets, food .

Hey its a road trip!  Good on ya' Josh!!!  Keep the stoke coming and may you be blessed with copious amounts of powder.... 

 

Shame that drink wasn't good, It looks like it should taste great.  Also, loved the pics coming across the country and yes, the perfume pic just says it all.

post #7 of 20

Yep--traveling by plane can never compete with a real road trip. I'm envious, Bushwacker. Have a great time, keep sending pictures, and keep in touch as you head toward Colorado.

 

Best regards,

Bob

There is a world of useful philosophy in that statement--eh, Yoda?

 

"I can't." No, you have merely chosen not to.

3 days and nearly every run had some sort of untracked snow. The bird does not suck, never has and never will but Alta is better;).

Nice pics!

 

Is that you in the yellow jacket? I think I saw you there the other day. There was a dude in a yellow jacket in the tram line on Tuesday morning; I knew I recognized him from somewhere and I think it was from seeing you on your TRs.
