Utah Pow Trip

Hey Everyone!

There are three of us heading to Utah mid Feb for 4days! Please recommend good places to stay for the nights, maybe not too far from the places to ride lol. Looking for something that has bare minimum, low cost but clean.

Also, if there are special places to ride, that we should def. check out, please chime in too

Have a fun riding season all!

P.S. Going to Park City fosho!!!

skip park city, its not worth the 100 lift tickets, brighton was my favorite.

SLC doesn't have much snow this year, so unless it dumps between now and Feb you might want to reconsider locations for your "pow" trip.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Hopefully we'll have some legit storms before then, so at a minimum, we should at least have a decent base by then.

Like others, I'd suggest skipping PC. Its terrain is nothing special and it has a real touristy vibe there. IF we do get some good storms, I'd suggest Snowbird and Brighton as the two places to hit. The bird does get tracked out pretty quickly on pow days though. I'd also suggest The Canyons, but I definitely am in the minority in regards to going there. 9990 is tons of fun though, so that's why I'd consider it if your coming out. Powder Mountain up north is supported to be amazing, but sadly, I have yet to have the opportunity to ride there.

I'd seriously consider eating the $150 change fee and changing the dates of your trip or chasing snow storms.
