david_z Utah is rad. Mid-February I hope you're avoiding Sundance week!

Personally having been there a few times I don't know that I'd stay in PC proper again but it's definitely worth doing a time or two. Bang for your buck is staying on the other side, in like Sandy/Midvale or even in the city, you're not too far a drive to the Cottonwoods and you can easily get to Brighton, Solitude, Snowbird, and PC/Canyons ain't too far either, or head north towards Powder Mountain and there's one more up that way I can't recall... Lodging much cheaper, too, but of course you don't get the whole "resort town" vibe and that's worth something for the experience I'm not gonna try and dissuade you from that.

sabatoa Man, just woke up from a dream where I was riding pow at Nubs. Reminded me of the good time I had riding with Chomps and bksdds there at the end of the season last spring.

ctoma A couple things I like about Park City... 35 minute drive from SLC; Vail resorts owns Park City and the resort formerly know as the Canyons and combined the 2 to make one of the largest resorts in the country; variety of terrain including some easier hiking options (easy is good when you're old); Epic 4-day Pass.

sabatoa We might do Utah this winter. Depending on how school is going, the plan is to do two trips west. We know we want Big Sky, the second one is up in the air.

ctoma For what it's worth I'm already booked for a week in Park City, UT for 2/18 - 2/25. Let me know if you happen to be out there that week.

sabatoa Been talking to Deacon and Slyder on the book of faces about a Midwest meetup. It looks like no matter where we go, one side or the other will have an 8 hour drive whether it's Granite Peak in WI or Boyne/Nubs in the NWLP.

I told them I'd be down for a group trip west too.

The reason I ask is I saw a Toyota Tacoma magazine ad and the people in the background were doing it.
Looks fun in the commercial, eh?

My buddy tried it a couple summers ago and had a similar experience - sand rash and he hated the climb back up. I think he took 3 or 4 runs before calling it quits.

sabatoa haha, I have people ask me if I do this during the summer.

I'd try it on a board that I didn't care about. Summer meet up at Silver Lake or Sleeping Bear? lol
