Pow Mt $18 cat trip, worth it ???

Is the Pow Mt $18 cat trip worth it for just one run? I know its a very subjective question, but let me know your opinion.

Thanks,

48 hours and counting down

Consider that the average snow cat trip runs about $300+ for about 10k vert.
I think one run down that ridge is around 1.5K feet or so.
Yeah it's a killer deal, be sure to hike up a bit too, I don't take the run out at the bottom, instead i go left and stay high, clear the next ridge and drop into the resort there. You'll have to do a tiny bit of hiking to clear it.
When are you going there?.

No i'd personally hit both. They are both very different mountains. Keep your eye on what this Sunday storm does, hopefully it works out for northern utah.
Go for it if 2 days at Pow Mow is more doable, it's all good, not like either of them sucks.
