SNOWBASIN Jan 25-30 Funny Story

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

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?

At about that time I got BWI to Denver R/T early Feb for a great $211. 

Could have gotten as insane as $200 with tax but flights weren't as good. Both on SW Air.

Others matched but charge for luggage.

 

They were only good Nov till mid Feb but purchase window is closed.

MdSkier, yeah, my only gripe about my ticket was the departure time of 1:30 on sunday. It rules out all hope of skiing on departure day. Problem from SoFLA is that we get NO direct flights unless you fly from Miami, but you get NO price breaks on those.

 

It looks as if only three of us are coming out for the trip. Two of us, both Bears, are heading for The Canyons with the Free PC tix on arrival that tuesday.

 

My one bro, whose condo is in Ogden, will be our guide on this trip, but we would like to hook-up with any Bears who will be around for some hard charging skiing and dining. We expect to be skiing there wed., thur., fri., & sat., then I leave and they get two more days. Though there is a 50-50 chance we may do some cat skiing over at Powder, depending on how mutha nature treats us.

 

Calling All Bears!!!

You are correct.  I know of 2 Stripclubs in Ogden.  Are you looking to "make it rain".  I hear that the girls' tatoos are even spelled correctly.

Snowbasin is the only place I've overheard guys talking about how nice the bathrooms are.

 

I lived at the base of that hill for many years, both before and after the 2002 Olympic upgrades. 

 

Yes, there was/is a strip club in the Ogden area but I cannot report on whether it's "good" or not.
