Default Tell me about Park City/Utah

Ahh, its summer....already thinking about powder.


Aaaannnnnd a REALLY good friend of mine just got a job at backcountry.com, moved to park city AND said I could come stay with her when ever I want.

So. Fucking. Stoked!!


I've spend the last three seasons riding 50+ days at Mammoth. However due to drastic changes in my life next year I will not have much time to snowboard nearly as much as I have in the past


BUT!I will have the $$$ to blow on a 2 week 'epic' trip. I hate that fucking over used word but there it is...

This will probably be my only time on the snow next season, (besides a few days at Mtn High which doesn't even count) So Im planning my trip now and I'm up for suggestions on where and when to go. Anything else that's cool to do there in winter etc.. Which resorts to hit up, how to score cheap lift tickets, getting around, places to eat etc...


While I have a place to stay, I will most likely fly from LAX, however I am up for driving if there is a way to get there from SoCal with AWD that's not too trecherous. I can take vacation whenever I want, so I'd prefer to drive so I can go when there is fresh pow rather then commiting to flights in advance and it being a crapshoot as far as snow condition.

Probably be doing most of my riding solo as my friend skis but is more into cross country skiing and snowshoeing. I think she does some downhill skiing but not sure.... Oh and she might have to work, too.

Park city is one of a very few other areas we would move to for living in the mtn sports life style. Cool town, sin city is what the Mormons of SLC call it..... The canyons resort and PCMR are right there in town.

It's a relatively flat resort.

If you live in breck then pretty much any park is a joke.......

Mixie, I'm guessing that its about a 10 to 11 hour drive, all interstate. I get to LA from vail in 12.5 hours max.....
