JH is super steep as well as Revy. You probably wouldn't have as good of a time if you went there. I would seriously look into PC. You can do it true scumbag style since you're under 21. Fly into SLC and take the bus line to PC. They are putting a bus service I think it is 10 bucks each way? There are also shuttles that go to PC I don't know how much they are though. PC is less steep than the cottonwoods resorts and plenty to do there nightlife wise if you have a fake ID.

Oh and sidecountry or slackcountry is riding outside of the resort boundaries where there is no avy control. A lot of people confuse that for off-piste runs which are just ungroomed runs.

That looks so sick. By mid January or early February would you say someone like me, non-local, could find powder lines without a big storm before? That looks like the best so far. I just can drive anywhere because I can't rent a car. I need to stay close enough to the mountain that I can walk.

I know this may be a dumb question but PC= Park City right? I have a friend out there, Air Force base. It didn't look like it had promised powder though. I've never been though so you do know best.

Yes, PC is Park City. Your buddy is stationed at Hill which is a bit aways from PC. Maybe an hour or so from PC but he could maybe help you get there? You get a little under 400" a year on average for snowfall. The cottonwood resorts get 500" on average but you will get pow turns if it snows in PC.

certain places will give you better odds than others, but nobody can "promise" pow turns.

I've been to Tahoe & Whistler in January without a drop of precipitation, riding on ice that makes the midwest look tame, JHMR suffered from a thaw & freeze right before we went there (NASTY, btw), got rained on Park City in early Jan., etc.

Then again, I rode 15" of fresh with Snowvols at Brighton in April

They've been more expensive the last few years, pushing $400-450 (from Detroit) I think I paid about $400 in April.

The plus side is that all the resorts are within ~45mins from the airport, so for a 3-day trip, it's really convenient.

What about is it for schweitzer cause I really like that one better. The only problem is getting from the airport to there.

I'd imagine there is some sort of shuttle service to the resort area.

On Southwest flights in to Spokane are typically pretty cheap. I don't know what is the nearest airport to you, or whether southwest flies out of there though.
