Personally, I would be super happy to keep those two gems as undercrowded as possible and let it stay a secret. On other hand this dude is probably Russian, and so am I. I reckon I feel some obligation to give the best advice possible. I don't think one can or should learn to ski powder properly w/o learning how to ski moguls and trees with ease. the best place to learn to ski bumps and trees is on soft snow with few inches of powder on top. I can 't think of any other place where these conditions are more consistent than in WW. Red Mountain is just and extra if it happen to have better snow (unlikely though). It seems that the OP is interested to improve his technique and is not concerned whether it is a mega resort with huge terrain available. He needs gradual progression in terrain challenge and keep tirelessly practice his technique. WW has it all with only a few people around and no wait time whatsoever at the chairlift.If he were to make a quick progress he can move on to catskiing w/o having to travel anywhere. Again this is probably the last time I am recommending WW and RM or Schweitzer to anyone. The less people go there the better it is for those who love these places.

It's hard to be definitive without either of us actually seeing SergeySm ski some ungroomed snow. I do think it's a safe statement that Powder Mt. and Grand Targhee are easier in terrain and at least comparable in powder to any of the above 3 places.
I will add that on that first 1997 week that finally got me skiing powder consistently, Fernie, Whitewater and Red were the places I went after Island Lake. So I do appreciate their virtues.post #93 of 989/20/12 at 11:43pmQuote:Originally Posted by tallklutz

Niseko and the surrounding local peaks... perfectly spaced beech trees... but I'm repeating myself. Targee is also a very nice idea for Sergey.post #94 of 989/21/12 at 9:53amQuote:Originally Posted by Tony Crocker

Nice to hear. I'm going to stay in Eden, UT for a week around X-mas. Will split my time between Powder Mt and Snowbasin. I'll let you know how many days I was able to get untracked pow of any depth.post #95 of 989/23/12 at 8:58am
I can't remember a day at either Powder or Snowbasin that I didn't find some untracked powder. But Powder is one of the few places I've skied where I've been able to repeatedly ski the same run untracked because my previous runs had filled in and no one else was there.
I often recommend Steamboat as a place for learning how to ski trees because of the variety of slope pitches and tree density combined with their propensity for champagne powder.post #96 of 9810/3/12 at 7:34amQuote:
You might want to consider a day with PM's catskiing operation. A dozen or so people on 3,500 acres - if the snow's there it's a poor man's heliskiing experience. Disclaimer: I do some guiding for them from time to time. Nonetheless, I don't hesitate to recommend it without fear of being accused of prejudice or promotion.post #97 of 9810/3/12 at 9:08amQuote:
Just point 'em straight down the fall line. That's way faster than all that turning.
