Looking to go out west next January. I want some challenging terrain. From Michigan as you can see.
So with that being said, where would you guys go out west? And by where I mean general areas. Such as,
1) Salt Lake City
3) Pacific North West
6) Your suggestion
Not looking for groomed highways like we have in Michigan. I would prefer if the obstacles were not tourists, but I am not out to huck a 20ft jump. "Slackcountry" / minimal backcountry skiing as well. I might hire a guide one day to take me out in to the backcountry and get my feet wet. This will be a 6 or 7 night trip.
I didn't notice any threads really hitting on this topic. Comments here and there, but not a whole discussion on where to spend a week out west.
