    Name the “fun terrain” of Park City you can’t find in Vail, maybe we can give you a hint on where you should go find it in Vail. ;)

    Any reason you want to stay downtown SLC? It’s not like Chicago or New York. There isn’t much downtown.

    That said, I don’t think the extra distance make much a difference.

    Reality being, few if any would try to hit ALL of the mountains on either pass in one season. So Ikon having more "iconic" mountains overall isn't all that relevant. It's really just which mountain...

    You're being greedy!


    Skiing before New Year WILL BE LAME!

    Most places may or may not have their best terrains open that early, including the trees in Steamboat can be hit or miss.

    I was at Copper last Christmas - New Year. It's not bad. No big lines. No big mob on the runs. But I understand that's not your favorite.

    It's also hard to make any changes when you have to honor all the deals and contracts already in place.

    Wait a season, many of those obligation would disappear. Much less baggage to handle.
