And for the life of me I could never get off the Orange Bubble chair lift without falling! Each time the lift operators said you will do it this time and boom - fall - was too much of a slope for this old time boarder! lol
actually went there today. the lift setup is stupid (IMO) and more than once i ended up on someone's property because of the mountain layout but otherwise canyons was much better than park city. the rope tow was...a learning experience for sure.

regarding it being too cold to snowboard; i get what you mean. there were moments where i was thinking, "WTF i SWEAR i'm standing on slope right now. why am not moving?!?!"

Nope, I've never experienced that. My location is a clue I guess.

The last time I was in Utah, it was around -5 or 0, and I definitely felt the sticky snow for the first time. It was an interesting experience.
