 I'm looking for the nice detailed Snowbasin guide that was posted a while back. I tried the in house search and searching with Google using site:www.epicski.com with no luck. Can anybody help?

While that guide is very useful, I would suggest PM'ing 4ster and hiring him to show you around.  I was at Snowbasin last Tuesday with my brother and friend.  We hired 4ster for a 2 hour private lesson so he could mostly show us around.  It is a great deal if you have several people.  Snowbasin gives you 30% off the first person if you pay with an Amex card and each additional person is only $30.  He showed us places we could have never found on our own.  This is our tracks off of No Name Peak where he took us.

 

 

He was great to ski with and offered some excellent tips.  It was well worth the money but I would recommend that you be at least a level 7/8 skier to make it worth your while.

A. Find the Mountain Ambassador name "Kevin", he can show you around.

 like here:

 

B. Arrive hungry, the breakfast burrito's are great

 

C. Make sure you use the bathrooms. (nothing to do with item "B")

B.+  The burgers are pretty awesome at lunchtime too!

 

C.+  Those bathrooms are way nice!  It's a ski resort and they may be the nicest I've ever been in.

 

D.  The skiing is great!

Snowbasin is west from where that pic is taken but that still is an eastern aspect. Does that make sense?

^ZZZ,

That makes more sense than what I said...  I guess I was thinking that it was to the west of Strawberry.

Thanks,

JF
