If I can't enjoy Utah powder, then why do I have to deal with my dumb-as-rocks Mormon neighbors? Life's not fair.
If your resort is closing with an 8 ft base, why dont you invest in a split board and skin your way to some back country powder?

I would be all over that if I wasn't a poor college student who just got his scholarship funding cut in over half for next year, despite having a 3.75 GPA. Gonna be working my ass off this Summer just to afford school.

yeah I absolutely can't complain - it was the best trip we've taken in years we got the full smorgasbord of spring seasons; everything from pow to slush to corduroy, great weather and good people to ride with.

just jealous that's all!

I wish season pass holders could just revolt and force the resorts to stay open longer despite losing money (obviously this makes no sense for them).

Took work off last Thursday for the last great powder weekday at Alpental (Seattle area) but now we are limited to the weekends as well.

always seems a shame when there's so much base left... hmm, time to invest in some snowshoes for the hiking perhaps

Canyons, Snowbird, Park City. Friday to Sunday. Snowed 90% of the time. Best three days of boarding I have ever had. Thank you Utah and Ullr.

we did Brighton, Bird, PowMow and two more days at Brighton, ending on Thursday right before you got there Tekniq33.

Everyone I went with had multiple "Best run of my life!" moments.

A foot or more of fresh at Brighton on 4/3, on top of that 5-8" at Snowbird the following day, bluebird cords at Brighton on Wednesday and blizzard dumping snow at Brighton on Thurs. to end our trip as that most-recent storm front swept through.

Really, really, really wished we could've stayed another day or two through the storm.
