Going to Utah from MKE... anyone interested?
This is mostly for people from Wisconsin because it'd be easiest to work, but if people from elsewhere want to go, I certainly wouldn't complain.
My wife and I are planning our (snowboarding) vacations this year and thought it'd be cool to see if others want to go, too... more fun ride with others, and should save money. First trip this year, we're looking to hit Utah in December (Brighton, Snowbird, Solitude?) for about 4 nights (3 full days on the hill, 2 travel days that might include hill time depending on flight times).
Just to get a couple things out there:
- They average about 500" of snow a year, last year they had 700" (Granite Peak, in Wausau, averages about 75")
- Cost is probably going to be around $1000 (a grand) per person for everything, including airfare (and the dang bag fees), hotel, car, and lift tickets
If you're interested, say something here so it can be discussed, maybe hit me up with a pm, too, so I can keep things a little more straight. My wife will try to get good rates for us, and it should work out that the more of us that go, the less the cost per person would be (group rates on flights and hotel rooms or whatever).
If you've never been there, Utah powder is really something else. I've been to Colorado a few times and thought it was good, then last year I went to Utah. Notice -- now I'm going back to Utah, not Colorado...
