Utah trip 2/17 - 2/22
Ok, well I am taking my son (16) and wifey to Utah on a last minute trip. We have to go this timeframe because of existing obligations. I want some opinions on the trip I am planning.
I would like to start off by saying we are not extreme boarders. We pick powder and trees over everything else. For example, our best trips historically, ordered by the most fun we had, are...
1. Whitefish, MT
2. Bachelor, OR
3. Brighton/Bird, UT
4. Whistler, CAN
6. Vail/Copper, CO
This order of "FUN" trips was totally based on the powder we experienced, which is MOST important.
I was thinking of flying into SLC, renting a car and heading to Snow Basin/Powder MT for 3 days and then hit Bird if new snow arrives. Is the canyons worth seeing. I am only saying this because we have been to the Bird 3 times with limited new snow and very tracked up within hours. I know that the POW is unpredictable, but all things being equal, what would you all do with 4 days to ski and explore. I want to end up in SLC, so snowbird should be the last stop if you include it on the trip.
