Ok I had a feeling this thread was going to turn into a pissing match over proximity to resort parking lot LOL.
Look I don't mind driving an extra 20 minutes and losing a 100 inch snowfall average for what I paid for the Snowbasin pass and a variety of other things I feel is worth the drive for. The pros far outweigh the cons for me personally.
So even if you want to on occasion go up there and hop in with us for the ridiculously long 60 minute "road trip" from downtown SLC then holler
I lived in Edwards so yes I'm gauged my Colorado comment off what I used to hear from my friends who came up to Vail valley, so really I have no personal experience with that drive from the front range, I'm sure it's not bad to Summit at all.
