headed to salt lake city will be there this friday the 21rst, we leave the following wednesday evening, plan to ski alta, brighton including some nite skiing, & some bouncing around, anyone have thoughts on a good plan, also any bears that will be skiing maybe we can hook up for some turns.
I hope you have a great trip. The weather looks very nice (warm and sunny) for the weekend.
I'd love to join you but we've just sold our house and we close a week from today. I'm in full-on moving mode from now 'til then.
Snowbird is a good place to go on sunny days this time of year. You can start out on the Mineral Basin side, follow the sun around there until things get too warm, then come back over to the tram side.
I agree wholeheartedly with rustyedge on Snowbasin. It also has a huge variety of aspects to play around with on sunny spring days. Only possible issue there is whether or not there's been enough snow this season to really make parts of the mountain skiable. I haven't skied there for a month, so I'm just not sure what kind of shape it's in.
Lastly, I love to ski Deer Valley this time of year. All those perfect groomers can be a riot just as they warm up in the sun and before they get sloppy. Also, if you catch it right and the off-piste is supportable, you can ski that entire mountain in the trees and just follow the sun around as things warm.
I wish I were going to be skiing this week. I'm moving crap instead.
