Using DV, Alta, and Brighton lift tickets with this weekend's storm coming

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have lift tickets to Deer Valley, Alta, and Brighton.  Deer Valley closes this Sunday while the other two are open until next Sunday (Alta of course is open longer but I won't be able to make it after the 20th anyhow).  We are supposed to get a few inches of snow this Saturday/Sunday.  I can't ski Saturday as it's my anniversary and I would like to stay married.

 

That leaves me with two options.

 

1) Ski Deer Valley in super warm conditions tomorrow (the ticket was cheap so quitting at noon isn't the end of the world), and ski Alta or Brighton on Sunday which should be great, then the other on Monday or later in the week.

 

2) Ski Deer Valley on Sunday with some fresh snow, then Alta or Brighton on Monday with the leftovers, and the other one later in the week in case there's another storm.

 

Since I've never been to any of the 3, I'm not really sure if Deer Valley on a decent day and Alta/Brighton the day after a storm would be a better option than basically throwing DV out the window for a horrible (but still skiing!) Friday in order to ski the Cottonwoods on a potentially very good day.

You're missing an important one: 

 

3.) Give away your lift tickets to someone that doesn't have an anniversary to worry about. 

 

I got your back.

Something to consider in terms of timing for Alta . . . regardless of snow . . . the last day for the Supreme lift is Sunday, April 13.  I'll be around skiing Alta through Thursday, April 18.  Shoot me a PM if you would like to meet up for a few runs to get you oriented to the possibilities.  Assuming you aren't coming on a powder day. ;)

 

Even if it snows over 4 inches this weekend, Alta will be pretty empty.  For last weekend's storm and Monday powder fest (Ballroom, Backside, Devil's Castle all opened), the Wildcat parking lot never filled up.

I ended up skiing Deer Valley today and, wouldn't you know it, they were getting rid of all the employee passes in the parking lot so I skied for free and still have my DV ticket.

 

If any epic skiers have a hankerin' to ski Deer Valley before it closes this weekend and are willing to pick it up in Ogden, the ticket is yours.

 

PS. The Turkey Chili totally lives up to the hype.

DV was great yesterday, the snow is transitioning to corn and the bumped runs are skiing nice during their window.  If it storms this weekend we could get rain here, the Cottonwoods would be the place.
