Well finally leaving for my trip Saturday! Very jacked to get out there...wish the weather was gonna be a little better snow wise and looks like warmer temps. Oh well, still gonna blow away the ice coast crap I am used to.
I think I'm gonna do a half day at Snowbasin Saturday 'cause I get in earlier than my partner. Hopefully get my legs under me a bit as I haven't been on my board for almost a month. Sunday we are gonna do a full day there. Not sure where we will ride after that. Thanks for all the tips and I will update how the trip went when I get back.
ps Broke out my old Volkl Carver Motions for my friend to take with him as a
second pair of skis. I haven't even taken them out of the bag since I took up boarding. Don't miss it

Just finished my Utah trip.
Canyons sucks. Might be alright if you know where to go, but it seemed like a small Vail. I hated it. Even though my pass made it free I would rather pay to go to the following the places.
I do gotta say though, the orange bubble chairlift with the heated seats was the tits! only thing I liked about the resort.
Brighton and Solitude were awesome as usual.
Snowbird was eh.

Yeah they are not playing very well this year. I don't think K has had one of his better years coaching. Should have never lost to Wake or worse yet, Notre Dame. I can see them making an early exit in the NCAA's if they don't right the ship and start finishing games.

|dukeno1||Ok thanks for the advice. I am hoping the weather cooperates a little in the next couple weeks. But it's gotta beat the icy mole hills of NC, lol.|

Just walk up there all confident like and say you have two bags to check. One will be a board bag, the other is other crap. Pay the necessary fees and don't sweat it.
BTW it was pretty warm last week. Hopefully they get some more big dumps, but the base was suffering especially lower mountain (I was at Canyons)

Ok folks, trip is getting closer. I am trying to figure out my baggage situation for the flight and thought I would see if anyone here knows the answer to a question I have. I am flying Delta and their website says that you can have a snowboard bag and a boot bag which can count as one checked bag. If the weight is under 50 lbs it is 25$. My question is what is considered a boot bag? I have a Nike duffle/sports bag with the two end compartments that I keep my boots in and the rest of my gear goes in the middle compartment. I weighed it and it is 18lbs so I know I will be fine weight wise with my snowboard. I am just curious how large the bag with the boots in it can be...
My duffle is not huge but it is definitely not just a "boot bag". Anyone have any insight on this? I figure a lot of you folks travel to board more frequently than I do. Been about 11 years since my last trip to Whistler. I plan on trying to call the airline and check but sometimes getting through and getting good info is a pain.

|Snowrax||Friends and are I thinking of visiting Utah around the last weekend of March 29. How do the conditions hold up by then? We're coming from the east where our end of season usually is late March.|
