Two or three including me. I have literally no powder knowledge so idk what that means. I just want some light tree powder, or none if possible in bounds. Nothing real steep or challenging. I thought about Jackson Hole but remembered I wasn't rich and I don't want a tourist resort.
JH isn't really a tourist resort... because it's so damned difficult to get to, it's only really busy during holiday weeks. But if you aren't looking for "steep or challenging," definitely stay away from there...as for Targhee, it's a great resort that has great terrain that isn't too steep, and they get tons of snow, but like JH it's not easy to get to. Most of the airports in the area are regional, so there aren't many direct flight options...and if you don't have the ability to rent a car, you're relying on a shuttle, so you're looking at staying in Driggs, Idaho or Jackson, WY...and if you're in Jackson, WY...
Have you looked at SLC? You'd have a number of great terrain options within 45 minutes of the resort, and you can get cheap lodging in Midvale or Sandy and still be on the shuttle routes for the UTA buses...and if you can get to Canyon Sports, you can get some decent lift ticket discounts...
I think I'm just sticking with Pow Mow. Looks huge so if we can't find pow by the lift we can hike or cat and still manage to stay in bounds. Seems pretty accessible too. Just stay in Eden and get a shuttle form the airport and there seems to be a bus shuttle that runs to the mountain for 3 bucks one way. But I looked on the map and it said the shuttle parking lot is like 11 miles from the mountain. Is this just where the pickup is? I wouldn't imagine a shuttle that goes to the base of the mountain but not all the way to it and then expect you to lodge. Also considering lodging at the actual resort. Seems about 160 a night for this one hotel place.
