Oh, and to give you an idea how valuable this kind of info is to some, Powdershots Photography at Snowbird sells a poster of the patrol map for Snowbird for $30. It has hundreds of...

Perhaps no one has noticed, but the map the OP posted is extremely valuable and huge improvement over anything on Google Maps or the official Mammoth map. Why? It has all of the names the...

This question is right in my wheelhouse. My wife and I had season passes to Brian Head last season and have been 3 days this season. There should be ample snow when you are there, that's arguably...

Mammoth is coming off their second snowiest December EVER. In history. I was up in early December and it was amazing, and I've been hearing it's amazing ever since.

What Treegreen said, but you'll also be close to the Ogden resorts (Powder Mountain and Snowbasin) and the Park City resorts (PCMR and Canyons). They get less snow than the LCC/BCC resorts but they...

I agree 162 might be a bit much for you. I'm similar (5"7, 150) and I ride a 154. I think I could go to 158 but 162 would seem long, unless I was cruising endless low-angle powder all the time.

Yeah, there is a lot of VERY tempting terrain that you have to resist, because you'd be stuck for hours on a powder day if you gave in to temptation. I think it's a blast in almost any conditions,...

My wife's 2010 Nissan Rogue SL AWD is our go-to snow vehicle. It just has the stock tires on it, but it's gotten us through some pretty tough conditions. At Solitude last year, we had an epic storm...

Mammoth last weekend

Drove up to catch the dump last weekend, and pretty much nailed it. It was a wet heavy snow, but Friday was a powder storm day, with virgin powder everywhere. Blows my mind how good this "first day...

Normally, my favorite is SLC but my boss lives there and was just out at Alta two days ago. He said it's decent, but coverage is still an issue and it's not worth making a trip for.

Mammoth. They are opening the entire mountain today. 100% open, and that's a lot of terrain. I was there last weekend for the storm and they got dumped on. On-mountain lodging is cheap if you do...

I was able to learn from a group lesson at Mt. Charleston. I was a quick learner, though, and once I'd listened to what the guy said and tried it a few times, I was able to teach the rest myself. ...

Wall is off the side of Broadway (lift 1). It's really similar to Spook, if I remember correctly.

Awesome photos, so jealous you were there for powder. Thought about June but we were Mammoth first timers and Mammoth is one of those bucket list places.

Thanks for all your advice, and I hope that someday we can take advantage of it. However, we've decided to cancel/postpone our trip. It's just too much money to get from Vegas to Mt. Hood and not...
