I’m going to Utah this Feb and I’ll be skiing Brighton & Solitude for the first time. I like to prepare for the best, so I’d appreciate some input/insight on managing those hills on a powder day. Specifically lift opening order, gate opening order, and the run priority order.
Brighton seems like it should be pretty straight forward and I don't see any gates. Do the lifts have a standard order for opening? Does the Milly lift open or close differently during storms?
Solitude seems more complex. Where does one start? Off the Summit chair, do they open the headwall side prior to the cirque side? where does one ski while waiting for the Summit chair to open? do the gates off Powderhorn and Eagle chairs open prior to the higher Honeycomb gates? and can you get to the Powderhorn from the Honeycomb return chair?
thanks in advance
