Utah Travel

So I recently finalized the plans for my Utah trip in march, going from the 5th to 10th. First day there checking on Utah State, maybe going to college there. But I was wondering when i fly there, should I actually get a board bag, or can I just toss it in any old bag and put rags and towels around it to protect it? And any resorts up in the Logan, Utah area where Utah State is, I was thinking of staying there for a day and hitting a resort up there and then for sure the next 4 days will be at the Canyons.

get a good padded board bag .. check all the normal sites for good discounts like sierra dogfunk etc .. airlines dont give a shit about your snowboard so make sure its padded! logan has beaver mtn .. a small family style resort but its pretty fun little place for sure ... logan is a good hour from slc (if the weathers good) and thats not including going back up another canyon to one of the slc resorts .. just fyi so you cna plan your trip .. also powder mtn and snowbaisin outside ogden are the closest to logan .. about half hour or so again thats with good road conditions

good weather you are looking at less than two hours .. maybe hour 45 or so .. depending on the time of day and weather ... unless captTenielle knows a back way to park city on some state road .. im not super familiar with the back roads up there

They close all the back roads in the winter months......I would though go through weber canyon and go that route.....only if it's good weather though.......they don't keep the roads all that clear in hicksville......in the summer you could go avon over trappers but won't do you much good to go then, now would it!! On a side note Burrito....we have Nyfamous and crew in town and I am sure they would love a tour guide if your free this week.....they keep asking about you......

I'll be in town with a bunch of 2-plankers on Thursday night. Probably Bird on Friday and Canyons sat/sun, with a follow-up to Bird possibly on Monday. We'll be staying in Salt Lake and hitting A Bar Named Sue on Thursday night.
