    Fingers crossed it's not another Utah (and being so close to SFO it probably isn't)

    Thanks, having never been there, that's good and encouraging to hear. Guess I'll find out. SLT is where I booked after the various unsatisfactory Kirkwood lodging interactions.

    As a SW engineer you've never seen that before?

    Well if you didn't start your interactions as attacking, people might read it differently.

    These last two frustrating weeks, I just happen to have been trying to book my personal trips to Kirkwood and Whistler for next year, so it’s on my mind.

    Ditto - stay in NJ and go to Utah when it snows here!

    And don't think the hypocrisy of you, the person who apparently lives inside EWR who constantly falsely extols how cheap western airline ski trips are over NE car ski trips, who says driving to NE is...

    So I'm going through similar hassles putting together my next western trips.

    Was never a "see Utah" trip, was "explore PC as single city destination" trip

    Firstly, thank you for explaining.

    Now I see what you meant, and I also see the disconnect for why we were talking past each other.
