Alta and/or Snowbird, when are you going to be there in 2015-16?

post #1 of 106
Thread Starter 

With the Cottonwoods getting storms measured in feet, not inches, seems like a good time to start a meetup thread for Alta and Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC).  Not sure there's been one before.  I expect most who put down their dates will be travelers, but hopefully some locals will notice as well.

 

I'll start.  Copy & paste the list when you add your dates.  My reservations were made a long time ago.  Will be with various friends during my annual late season trip. :D

 

MarzNC and friends: Jan 30-Feb 2 (Sun, Mon, Tue) - mostly Alta

MarzNC: Mar 29-Apr 8 - mostly Alta but have MCP so Snowbird is possible too

 

Edit: meant Mar 29, not Mar 2

I will be traveling by truck camper so no definite dates but I should be at Sun Valley Jan.22 and 23 and then 7 or 8 days in SLC skiing Brighton on a Max Pass (up to 5 days) and Snowbird/Alta on a MCP.

 

Leaving for Aspen on Tue., Feb.2.

 

Marznc, lets meet up at Alta on Sat. Sun. or Mon.and exchange some PMs for exact times meet up spot a  few days prior.

Sounds like a plan!  My friends and I will be at Solitude on Sat, Jan. 30.  Want to check out the new Summit lift, plus a couple friends have never been inside Honeycomb Canyon.  Snow levels were too low last season.  We're spoiling ourselves and staying at Alta Lodge.

 

Mon, Feb. 1 will probably be the best day to meet up at Alta.  I'm planning on taking a lesson on Sun.  We are also driving to Aspen on Tue, but leaving after skiing that day since we have multiple drivers and only going as far as Carbondale.

Snowbird sometime between Feb 13-17, not sure which days yet though. 

 

Can't go to Alta since we're snowboarders ;)

Looks like we have potential overlap at Alta on Jan. 31 and/or Feb. 1.  @Leo79Arg : have you skied at Alta before?

post #18 of 106

@marznc : I skied Alta two years ago. Looking forward to visiting again!

Great!  Heading out to ski right now.  I think I'll create a meetup thread for the overlap dates in case anyone else is going to be in LCC then.

marznc, you were nice enough to provide me with some great tips the last time (my first time) I went to Alta/Bird.  Never reported back, but I had an incredible time.  Thank you.

 

Can't wait to go back.  Wish it could be this year.

post #22 of 106

Can you guys give me any tips? I've never been to Snowbird.. heck I've never been to the West coast to ride yet.. but will be next month. My bf has gone before and he loves Snowbird and is it worth it for me to go? I'm a beginner/intermediate I'd say.. I am hoping there's slopes I can ride on as well? About to go check out their map now.. 

 

Again, we will be Park City from February 13-17 (we leave the 18th early that morning) and the 13th we will be night riding somewhere just not sure where since our flight gets in around 130 in the afternoon in SLC. 

 

Thanks! 

post #23 of 106

Snowboarding at Snowbird 2/1 and 2/3. I'm thinking Solitude 2/2 and Brighton 2/4

Would rather keep this thread more for meet up dates for folks definitely going to Alta/Snowbird.  Suggest you start a separate thread.  Or ask in the Utah thread.

 

I would not recommend Snowbird for a beginner/intermediate skier when Alta is right next door but could be different for a boarder.

Believe BobMc skis a lot at Snowbird.  He may be playing bashful or hasn't seen this thread.

Yeah, @BobMc is at Snowbird almost every weekend.  Folks interested in seeing if he's going to be around can send him a PM.  He gave me and Bill a nice little intro to the Cirque traverse, although conditions was on the sketchy side with the low snow conditions last season.

I'm there every day that I'm not at work, and sometimes days that I should be at work, ;).  Tomorrow will be one of those should be at work days where I'll find myself at Snowbird, I'm hoping for a shot of new snow to make the day fresh.

 

I keep a rolling update of the conditions at Pugski.com.

post #30 of 106
