I was out there a week ago Saturday for the first time and loved the place. The bottom 1/3 was a bit icy but up top was great. The John Paul area was fun, I was sticking to the groomers - women's downhill mostly - and I thought that had a good pitch to it.
I'll be perfectly honest. Conditions at snowbasin are bad. If you've ever skied on a coral reef thats what off-trail is like. The groomers are fine and can be fun, but it's limited to that. Strawberry should open tommorow as should no-name off JP (no grooming there).
