You definitely live in a great spot. It does crack me up how the peeps in Salt Lake City hardly if ever go to the Ogden area resorts and vice a versa. Kev thought that it was too much of a drive from Ogden to Little Cottonwood Canyon when Tom and I went down there for the day.
Around here I can drive a little over an hour to get to most spots. Berthoud, Vail Pass, Summit County, Winterpark etc. I also drive as much as 3-4 hours to hit other spots like Monarch Pass. Of course Colorado isn't as condensed as Utah is in terrain and spots. Of course there is the I70 shit show. The amount of terrain out here, especially for bc users is mind boggling. It's also spread out over hundreds of miles.
