    If you're into rock climbing or mountain biking I imagine Moab would be a hell of alot more fun than lcc in the next couple weeks.

    Mammoth is supposed to be skiing real good. We are skiing all of the front side at Kirkwood but the skiing is about to deteriorate for the next few weeks.

    i could bail and lose about $300. since big sky is on my pass and will have decent skiing, i dont think it is worth it to cancel. it is use it or lose it vacation days for me in 2017. sitting around nyc for the entire two weeks would be so boring. skiing the east for the two weeks would just eat up my max pass days and kill me on lodging and gas and mileage. i know i'm spending on hotels out there, but its real cheap ($40/night SLC, $70/night west yellowstone).

    Yeah, no way I'd make that trek daily to get to the mountain. Staying in the town/village was far enough away for us, but not too bad.

    I know. it's an hour. but I'm alone and staying in big sky is prohibitively expensive, and staying in Bozeman is basically as far as west Yellowstone while being 2 hours further from my starting point in SLC. it's not ideal but I'm trying to make lemonade with this trip. if the weather forecasts are to be believed, I will have clear driving the entire trip

    I think you'll wind up traveling 191, which was mostly flat from what I saw. Pretty dark, but flat. If no snow, it travels fast too.

    If you don't eat dinner at both Buck's T-4 Restaurant and Gallatin Riverhouse Grill, then you're fuckin' up. They're both on 191 also. Just posting about it makes me want to get a nice steak at Buck's.
