I don't see where this is a pissing match at all. Making fun of the stereo type sure. For most the commute to Snowbasin is ridiculously long compared to driving up the Cottonwoods or to the Park City spots. I find that funny. 20 minutes is nothing.
Good on you for choosing Snowbasin. It's great mountain. A rather long commute for me, but I know of some gems out of that area.
