Thanks for the reply. I would like to stay on the mountain and walk out my door to the lift line. Out of all teh resorts in Utah i guess i would be looking at brighton or Park city. As you stated i looking for that EPIC terrain lol.
Thats disappointing about jackson hole, but not really bc im looking to go anywhere. I wanna book within a week, bc i figure new years will be very crowded. Thanks for the reply though...
what do you like about brighton?
I like that it's incredibly inexpensive for lift tickets/season passes.
I like how they get 500+ inches of snow on average, last year I didn't go unless it was a powder day and you can see how many they had:
and thats not even counting till their closing day at the end of april
I like how it's just over a 30 minute drive from my apartment. Hell, I could go home for lunch and come back and shred, and I live downtown.
I like how I can jump off stupidly big cliffs and just fall into bottomless powder.
I like how it's not that crowded and you can still shred powder waking up at noon (becoming more crowded every year though
I like how everyday you find new and insane terrain you never thought existed.
I like how there are tons of 'secret' spots you can shred all day without anybody bothering you (endless cliffs to pow)
I like how much variety there is, they have stuff for everyone. From a kids first day out to pros.
I like how it's a pow resort and has a great terrain park
I like how I can take the same lift as my friend who is a beginner, and he can take the easy way down, but I can take a pow run through trees and meet at the bottom of the same lift.
I like how I can spend all day on a single lift and not get bored.
I like how I can go on and on all day about everything I love about brighton
The only thing is though, it's a real 'local' resort, so there aren't any hotels at the base. But you can check out solitude, which is 'connected 'to brighton (you can buy a lift ticket for both resorts and transfer to each using certain trail) Solitude is more of a resort (hotels, restaurants etc.) They have an in-bounds backcountry like area called Honeycomb Canyon. AMAZING terrain, pow runs all day. Cliffs, trees, chutes, anything, even easy pow runs for beginners. Solitude is always empty, it's....solitude
Snowbird has places to stay so check out that too, just a little more crowded. Here's an idea of the area http://i.imgur.com/Tnx8w.jpg
