skied alta yesterday, and hurt my hip pretty bad but that is besides the point. I have to say i see the hype about alta, alta people come across as snobes and some of them are, by saying they have better snow than snowbird, its more preserved and better terrain, plus a better culture. I have to say alot of this is true. Snowbird may have more gnar but as far as enjoyable terrain i think alta has it

Both places are pretty special. Since they are side by side on the same mountain range, it's hard to say which one is better than the other. And at this point in the season, neither one has 100% open. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the uber-gnar runs aren't open yet. Might want to re-evaluate later in the season.
I know I just like to poke the fire. I think snowbird seems to have to the more difficult terrain, atleast the stuff that is easily lift accesible, but alta just has a layout I really enjoy. Its just a fantastic skiing experience.
I was going strong with two days ago being my 12th day of skiing this season, but i seemed to reaggrevated and old injury. I tore my labrum in my hip and few years ago and had it repaired last december. I am not sure to the extent of my current injury but it does not feel so great right now, but only time will tell.
I will be very upset if this ends my season
