have to go with the group concensus, i'm sure my day tomorrow at alta will be just fine, but i can look forward to TONS of runout and the bogus sugarloaf lift, teacups instead of bowls, big rutty traverses, and "glamorous" hiking.
god bless america - lift ticket was $50 at my hotel desk, superpass, La Quinta, MidVale. Yesterday I paid $69 for $39 worth of skiing at The Canyons, showed up at 1:30 from morning flight.
It was wicked up there today, at snowbird, esp on the top half of the mountain, i was suprised by how even the snowfall was all the way down to the bottom of the mountain. skiing was mostly chopped up, but later, because visibility at the top of mineral basin was so awful, the slopes filled in for some real powder skiing feeling.
