Invite everyone here to ride our lifts, but don't let them drink!
That's just embarrassing. It's amazing what DABC can get away with without rulemaking.

Yep, Urine Utah!

^^^^ Wow.  UT doesn't want beer at Octoberfest, while there are pot shops all over CO.   Quite the contrast.

Hmm - can you imagine what legal pot would be like in UT if the rules were modeled after the liquor laws?

 

You'd have to be a member to get served weed.

Only your server could light your joint for you.

You could only get a second joint served to you after either completely finishing the roach from your first joint (or giving it to your server).

The price for a 6 pack would be the same price as 6 singles.

Weed would be limited to 3.2% potency.

Yeah, and guess who gets the bulk of tourism in general and skier days specifically?  It is always Colorado.  The religious zealots in Utah are clueless about the impact of some of their decisions.  An Octoberfest w/o beer?  That should make international news.

Oh, there is one more thing.  The doobie would have to be rolled behind a curtain.

after seeing how many people showed up to marginal powder day at A basin in May. I am glad utah has its silly laws and misconseptions that keep everyone out. Ill continue to ski there and they will be less people. The skiing is better anyways and with much less people around even on the most epic powder days than the average Colorado dust on crust 10 inch day.

I ski the Sierras and Utah mostly now, and once lived in Colorado.  Both states have great snow IMHO, and both states have ski areas that are not crowded most of the year.  The Rockies are visually nicer (Canadian Rockies the better because the mountains are more jagged, being so much older), the Lake effect into the Cottonwoods is hard to beat, and decent food and micro-breweries can be found everywhere.  But not having beer for Octoberfest?  That is an embarrassment.

Oh Josh, that day wasn't typical.  It was probably the busiest day of the year at A-basin.  Every other area in the state was closed.  The weather in Denver was miserable, so a big chunk of a couple million people just a bit over an hour away wanted to get their last powder day of the year.  And... since so many folks have epic passes it only cost them gas money.   Still a fun day, though!

 

I tend to agree with you on the other points, except I'm pretty certain my powder days at Copper, Winter Park and Aspen this year were far less crowded than a typical powder day at Altabird.

Yes, it actually was the busiest day, I heard. I mean, it was a Monday, too! The whole thing was so strange.

we apparently had great corn snow, and Mount washington was even better. 

 

BTW Trolling is not allowed on epicski.com and I have flagged your post as being an obvious troll.

This whole year has been like a non-stop full moon. One of my dogs has now taken to watching TV in the evenings. Something is coming...

You flagged a post so someone else can decide what if anything to do, so take a breath and let go. No need to stoke anything.

Trolls or no trolls, Utah is now in the news for something other than Octoberfest at Snowbird.  It appears they want to cover up the yearbook photos of  high school girls, but haven't figured out how to do it properly with Photoshop:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2014/05/29/utah-high-school-alters-girls-yearbook-photos-to-cover-skin-remove-tattoo/
