I'm heading out to Utah on Saturday 3/14 for a week of skiing with my girlfriend, my brother and one of my best friends. Ability level is a little mixed but fairly even. We'll be skiing some combination of Alta, Snowbird and Solitude. My brother and I did the same trip last year and it was a blast, but I feel like I missed out on a lot of stuff at each resort...but I guess that's something to be expected hitting all 3 places in 4 days. This year we're skiing 5 days so it should work slightly better.
Are there any bears willing to offer up some time to show me around a bit? I'm an upper-intermediate/advanced skier with a fairly strong sense of adventure. Last year I was skiing pretty much all the groomed stuff at those resorts (I know, I know...) but this season I've forced myself to venture off trail more and more when I get the chance. I'd love to hit some tree runs, maybe an easy chute or something.. anything to push myself a bit and enjoy what Utah has to offer.
If anyone's up for it, PM me. I probably won't want to split from my group too much (especially my girlfriend, I don't know that she'd be too pleased if I ditched her after talking about this vacation non-stop for a year), but if someone wants to join up with us for a while or even just has an hour or two to spare, that'd be awesome and I'll gladly buy some lunch or end of day drinks to repay the favor.
