Going to Utah

Hey,

I have been lucky enough to have been granted the opportunity to leave the barren wasteland of the Northeast to go to Utah for a weekend of snowboarding. I'm having trouble finding a place to go. I have to stay near Salt Lake City and other than that there is no restriction. I was looking for advice on where to go. I'm going from Nov. 20-24. So it would have to be open by then. I was calling places and a lot seemed pissed that i was asking about snowboard instead of skiing. So it would help if they were board friendly.

I would do The Canyons in Park City, Snowbasin or Powder Mountain. These are all board friendly resorts.

You can ride pretty much anywhere except Alta and Deer Valley.

Snow Basin/Powder Mountain are a good drive from Salt Lake. If you are looking at staying with resorts near Salt Lake I would say that Snowbird is a must.

I would avoid Park City Resort. It is overpriced and sub-par. Canyons is nice and board friendly.

I am partial to Brighton because it was one of the few places that allowed snowboarding back when I started. It has great snow and also is open until 9pm. The crowds are not bad mid-week.

Snowbird is hoping to be open on the 15th. Snowbird is probably your best bet for good snow in November.
