Would you take the loss??

Trip is booked for Utah Feb 17th for 5 days. The air tickets were free with CC points and if I want to shelf the tickets it would cost $600 for the 4 tickets. Plan was to rent a car and just travel to different resorts. It just doesnt look promising as far as weather goes. I could also spend the $600 and change the destination to a different location, but it looks sucky everywhere else.

What would you do?

Just come on out. Make the best of conditions and you never know it could be fun after all. I have had fun every day I have gone out and I've only had a couple pow days this year.

Snowboard is fun regardless of conditions if you're in the right mindset.

i never could understand this frame of mind, why do people traveling to destinations most of us have in our backyard bitch about conditions more than the locals do.
i for one ride every weekened all weekend no matter what the conditions are and i ALWAYS have a big fkn grin on my face

my advice, fly out and make the best of it because chances are you'll have more fun at your destination then sitting at home bitching about lack of snow

I skipped one day we could have boarded on the ice coast this year because I was exhausted from work. Any time spent on the mountain is better than sitting home being pissed about not being on the mountain. And its ridable in UT even if its not pristine.

We went to Northstar last year at the end of Jan after a month of zero snow and had a fuckin blast.

You kinda answer your own question... its not in our own back yard and its a huge deal for us ice coasters to come out west to your back yard. btw, I'm not really bitching just whining like a spoiled brat! I do a lot of tuna/marlin fishing here in MD. The ocean is my back yard so when the weather sucks, I dont bith about it cause there is always next weekend.
