Yeah...though people hating on Utah liquor laws seem to forget Colorado has pretty much the same laws - only 3.2 beer in grocery stores etc. As well as Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma... Also there are counties in this country that you can't even get a drink AT ALL. Coming from California I honestly barely ntocied a difference. Sure it's completely ridiculous, but hey

Truth. That's why I'm going to CO this year.

In all seriousness, walk-to resorts are few and far between unless you're willing to pay serious $$$. Utah is great if you stay outside PC proper. Last time there we stayed in Sandy for dirt cheap in a 5BR townhouse, a stone's throw from Brighton, Solitude, Snowbird. Next to zero nightlife, though. Stayed in Breck a few years ago, fun little town and a good mountain with great parks. In Vail right now until Sunday and headed back to Breck next week. Tahoe has a ton of resorts but it's a bit like UT in that, you need a car to be able to travel around and hit different places. SLT is a super fun place to stay, and casinos are usually pretty reasonably priced as far as resort towns are concerned.

Just got back from Park City two weeks ago. Stayed in North Tahoe last year. Never been to Vail. Where we stayed in Tahoe had pretty much no nightlife as far as I could tell. The admin is right- the South Shore near Heavenly was hopping. Also, the guy complaining about Heavenly- unless you need an endless variety of cliffs I wouldn't listen to him. I thought it was fun. Park City had ONE bar that fit my description of a cool bar- it's called No Name and was pretty awesome. We had dinner at the distillery (High West) but like most things in Park City it's designed to appeal to rich people.

My idea of good night life is trying to find where locals go. No Name seemed to be that place in Park City. I'll tell you something else though that will tell you something about how I feel about local nightlife hangouts- some of my favorite times partying ever at a mountain town was in Glacier (near Mt. Baker, Washington.) We went to a bar called Chair 9 that was packed with people, many of them still in their gear at 8 at night and met so many people and talked about the mountain and boarding and all kinds of stuff. Very friendly and very fun. Plus they have a 30 foot movie screen they play ski porn on the entire time. it was awesome!

There's a few cool places in Park City. No Name is definitely fun. There's also an italian place that converts at night. Downstairs which is more of a club, but it's still fun. There's some fun spots there. This hookah place up north and a few others.

I can get IPAs in a bar no issue. I can order shots without issue in Colo. The laws in Utah are way more annoying.

Yeah wasatchman, the laws have changed in Colorado a ton in the last 20 years. You are showing your age.

Liquor sales are 7 days a week now. You can buy what ever on Sundays. Full strength beer still has to be bought at the liquor stores. Grocery stores only have 3.2. But Liquor stores are open on Sundays now. I have no idea why the grocers still carry 3.2. They complain they can't sell it and want to sell full strength beer and wine. Of course the liquor stores fight that change. If I was the grocer I would just dump the 3.2 and use the shelf space for something else. If they did that they would also probably get their wish.

I will say that Utah laws have also gotten a lot better. The state run stores are still lame but at least you can walk into a bar now instead of a social club. Next thing to get rid of is the Zion curtain. That is just stupid.

Shit sounds like trying to get alcohol in Vancouver Canada.

Imagine my surprise when 7-Elevens, Costco's and drug stores didn't carry beer? But you can walk around with zip of chronic and nobody bats an eye.

My buddy got married to a chick up there 10 years ago and we were eating dim sum, and her dad and uncles brings over two handfuls of just dried buds wrapped in paper towels to our table. I'm from So Cal, I'm looking around sketch seeing if anyone is watching us lol. Are the cops behind that wall or something wtf?

You can get any strength beer in Utah bars and liquor stores. But everything else is spot on.

What pisses me off the most is how they have to scan everyone's ID everytime no exceptions. Even if you know the doorman. Even if you are 60. I don't like the idea that my info is put onto some list of heathens. My ID looks like it got chewed on by a bear so it wont scan sometimes and they will write down my info most of the time. I don't like the idea of shady ass bouncer types having access to my info like that.

Another dumb rule is no daily specials or happy hours. Everything has to be the same price all the time. They say this encourages binge drinking, which of course leads to alcoholism and the wife beating and homelessness.

I don't know if this is still the case but when I first moved here the liquor commission consisted of like 6 out of 7 non drinkers.

And then there are 1 am closing times....


However, one thing that makes up for all these dumb rools is how cheap it is to drink in a bar. Ive had nights where I laughed at how cheap my bill was at the end of the night.

But like snowvols said, the snow sucks and the girls are ugly. Go to vail. heard the heated sidewalks are nice.
