Could use a ski buddy in Utah, Week of March 7

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Various plans have fallen apart such that it looks like my only chance to ski in Utah this year might be by myself. This opportunity is sort of a gift from my wife, but she really wants me not to ski alone for safety reasons. I'm a pretty laid back but competent skier. Hmm, this is starting to read like a pathetic personal ad. Anyway, if anyone is interested or knows of a group I could tag along with, please PM me.

Bummer, we are there the week before for 8 days but leave on March 7.

I'm now thinking of flying in on March 4 instead, so perhaps I can catch up with you.

Our group is two couples.  We will be arriving on Feb 26 and staying at a friend's condo at Deer Valley for two nights, skiing DV on Saturday and Sunday, 2/27 & 2/28.  On Sunday evening we will be moving to Marriott's MountainSide for 7 nights, skiing at PCMR on Monday. 

The only two ski days that we'll overlap will be Friday and Saturday, 3/5 and 3/6.  At this point our plan is to ski Alta on Saturday, Friday will be PCMR, Canyons, Snowbasin, or possibly Solitude or Snowbird, depending on where we ski earlier in the week and the coverage at Canyons.  We will already have tickets for every place except Solitude and Snowbird.

You haven't mentioned where you'll be staying or whether you'll have transportation.  If you're staying in Park City, this could be doable if we ski at PCMR or Canyons on Friday.  Saturday we'll be driving to Alta but with the skis in the SUV there won't be room for more.

Let me know.

P.S.  I grew up in the Detroit area until I moved to San Diego in 1989.

Thanks, My plans are still a bit up i nthe air. I will PM you when they are clearer. Either way I will rent a car so my location shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Don't feel bad that your only option for skiing this year is by yourself!  I am doing the same thing the week of March 22nd to the 25th.  Three days at Snowbird but might head to Alta for a day.  I am staying in Midvalle at a hotel and just skiing three days.  If your flexible on your dates that's when I will be there.

Sorry, I'm locked into the academic schedule.

Me too, that's when my spring break is.  Wish I was there NOW!

 If you are coming in on the 4th, i'll be driving up the 5th to ski the 6th and 7th that weekend like I usually do (gas and mileage on the car is killing me!)

Let me know, I'm up there at worst every other weekend (except this weekend, i'm going to drive to Mammoth!)

Well I had an enjoyable but solitary day - at solitude.

If anyone will be in the cottonwoods tomorrow let me know, perhaps we can meet up. Looks like there should be some nice fresh powder.

The honey combs are sick!   Solitude is a great resort, but shhh don't tell anyone.
