Hey man, hope this doesn't catch you too late. I was really disappointed by The Canyons this time around. Last time I was there was epic. This time, IDK, just rubbed me all sorts of the wrong way. Too many cat tracks I guess.

If you get a chance, get in touch with Burritos and go ride Brighton with him. He definitely knows his way around there. Check out the Milly Chair if you're up for some faux backcountry type riding. Good glades and a few cliffs and rock drops of varying sizes.

Definitely check out Snowbird if you get a chance, too. We only spent one day there, but I wish I could've traded that dat at The Canyons for another day at the Bird or at Brighton. Both chairs off the Mineral Basin were a blast. Mineral Basin express served primarily steeps, cliffs, slackcountry and BC access. Baldy Express served access to Alta, as well as some really nice, coasting green runs that kind of resembled a bowl. Awesome over all.

I was pleasantly surprised by PCMR, I know it gets the bad rap as the "tourist" resort, but we were there midweek so it wasn't really very crowded, and conditions were overall pretty good. I'd ride there again, but next time around I definitely have to make more room for the Brightons and Snowbirds.

Just checking the 10-day forecast and it looks like shit. About 38 degrees and sunny. I guess it could be worse, but f*cking christ is it too much to ask for one decent powder day? I've been flying from DTW to resorts all over the continent for the better part of a decade now...

We arrive around noon on Monday, so I'm thinking of hitting PowMow for the twilight 3pm pass ($15) just to get a few hours warm up. On Sunday we check out, but our flight home isn't till monday AM, so we might book-end the trip at PowMow for another twilight ride if we got any legs left at that point...

We've got 8 tickets to PCMR between the 4 of us that we'll probably burn pretty early, like Tuesday/Wednesday hoping to avoid crowds by riding there midweek. After that, Thursday thru Saturday I could be persuaded to ride anywhere in the area. What's best on Saturdays in terms of avoiding the dreaded crowds?

Anyways, I'm working up an itinerary now and based on your advice, so I'll add at least one day at either Brighton/Solitude/Snowbird. If you're down to ride Brighton, I'll either commandeer our minivan and meet you up there, and leave the rst of my group in PC, or convince them that it's in their best interest to venture out of the city.


This is kinda what I'm looking at right now:

Monday
Arrival around lunch time. Get rental car. Find something for lunch. Consider ~4hrs of riding at PowMow for $15. That's a bargain and we should get some daylight left, too. Ride until 7 and we can get back in the car and get to PC in time to go out for the night.

Tuesday
PCMR

Wednesday
Solitude/Brighton/Snowbird

Thursday
PCMR
Anthony arrives in the afternoon so we need to stay local to meet him when he arrives, and use the rest of my vouchers to PCMR.

Friday
Canyons

Saturday

Solitude/Brighton/Snowbird

Sunday

PowMow for more twilight $15 night riding, legs permitting. Or, just sleep.

david_z I liked the Canyons better, too. But I only got one day on each of canyons & PCMR due to blizzard & rain the last time I was there.

Magnum626 Cool thanks for the heads up. I've been checking liftopia as well. I liked the canyons better than PC last time I went out there.

david_z sure thing - what mountains are you hitting?

We'll probably be doing a few days each at Canyons & PCMR (I have 8 lift tickets for PCMR that I got on ebay for about $60) and I'd like to hit at least one of the out-of-town mountains, but I'm undecided as to which one to make the trip for.

Magnum626 I'll be there the day you're leaving....

If you find secret stashes let me know.
