Alta -Snowbird - Dec 8,9

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well! what can I say - Fri 8", Sat 14-18", Sun 12".
tons of snow, tons of fun. The only complaint I have is there was not much open. At Alta - only collins and wildcat
and Snowbird - finally got the tram open on sunday - with access only to Regulator Johnson. They did not even have little cloud lift running. No access to Mark Malu side at all.
Which basically meant - really long long lines everywhere.
And the worst part is - they charged their regular full day lift ticket rates. that really pissed me off.

Snowbird will probably open Peruvian side this week - as i saw them grooming chips run.


8am Saturday morning on the road to Alta


915am Collins & wildcat Lift line - you can see only half as it wrapped around


my skis are 161cm. so at least 80cms of fresh


off of Mambo


skiers right of Wildcat lift


collins restaurant 1


collins restaurant 2


punchbowl


845am - Tram line at snowbird. the line wrapped around the other side of the building and inside ofcourse - leading
to a 30-45min wait


Regulator Johnson


More Regulator Johnson


More Regulator Johnson


More Regulator Johnson


They need more snow at the bottom, this is Harper's off of
Wilbere lift.

actually beleive it or not that some of the best skiing on the lower mountain right now. Those willows are very easy to just ski right though and capture snow better than a bare slope
