Dave, Thank you for the great post!
I'm going to PowMow the first week in March with my wife and friends, we are planning on skiing PowMow and Snowbasin for the week. Your write up was most informative and you have me stoked to get there ASAP. I too am a Sugarloafer since 1978 (pre-Bullwinkle's). Do you remember the old Sugarloafer Ski Dorm halfway from Kingfield to the ski area?
It sounds like you were not pleased with whatever flavor of GMC you were driving, we are considering renting a Dodge 1/2 Ton 4x4 pick up or a Jeep Grand Cherokee for the trip and thoughts on which would be better? We are staying in Wolf Hollow and making the daily drive.
