Several weeks back I scored a R/T air ticket to SLC from PBI (West Palm Beach) for the insane price of $207. I didn't even ask the wife cause I knew the fare would vanish, and it did. I had promised to ski UT this year with some old ski bros as well as some of the Hogs. So it is done! Oh, for some reason, DEN was more $$$ than SLC at the time I bought the tix.
So the fun begins when I inform the troops that I WILL NOT be in Vail this January, but UT instead. The emails start pouring in, SNOWBIRD/ALTA, no Snowbasin and Dick's townhouse in Ogden. I like lots of endless, cheap powder lines! The guy I've known the longest on this planet almost jumps ship cause he wants the Bird only. Others can't catch a break on fares, you know how it goes!
Well, it looks like we have pulled it together with at least 4 committed to the Snowbasin idea, which works for me. I haven't been to the Basin ever, and I haven't skied UT in almost 20 years, but I did spend many weeks there in the '80s, the wife use to have medical conferences there until they moved them to Snowmass. Pity!!! ha-ha
One other humorous note. Dick got a tennat in his townhome during this for the season, so we had to rent one in his complex for the week. SICK twist, his townhouse was the original reason for coming out to the Basin. Still, I get a room for $200. Schweet!!!
I hear that Ogden has a great strip club, is that true?
