Baker looks cool for a trip in the future, but I can't ride that right now..at least not safely. Seems like must the fun is out of bounds and I can't go out there.

You could probably ride some steep pow lines inbounds at Baker...inbounds is really a pretty small/compact area. Going out of bounds you got to have it together...and you'd stupid if you didn't. The problem is afterwards especially after a good pow day it can make the majority of other resorts look abit anemic...and you might end up chasing the dragon.

if you're a fan of powder i'd say go to powder king, north of bc. omg they have snow up to your shoulders in powder. it's so crazy. but my all time favorite would be fernie, bc. best hill i've been to in terms of diversity. you have so many runs and if you're bored of that you can go in the trees where the powder is just unreal...i've never seen so much snow in my life my first time i was there. definately such a great experience. i've been going there every year since.

I've been to almost all of the resorts listed in this whole thread and there are plenty of great ideas, but someone suggested road trip and that's the best idea. Head west and set up shop in SLC there is always pow stashes somewhere and if you can't find it there you can always hop scotch to Jackson Hole or Grand Targhee. I rode for 3 days in SLC and at the end of a long day of riding loaded up the truck and drove to Jackson since they had a 30" dump that day. I've had really good luck checking into hotels late at night and negotiating a cheap nights stay. After riding in JH we did the same thing in Grand Targhee. Best memories, best trip and best snow in my 20 years of riding.

Also if you have full coverage auto insurance call your agent they may be able to help with a car rental, mine did when I was 19. Sorry for the uber long post.

Just came back from steamboat and a few other resorts out that way but would definately reccomend steamboat even though this year the snow was pretty average it is the same everywhere. had awesome tree runs though and the little dumps we did get were awesome fun
