    Alta doesn't seem to have this problem. I've talked with a few Alta patrollers, and it seems like many of them started at snowbird and moved over to Alta due to problems with management. Alta is...

    Mineral Basin would be good if ski patrol ever opened it within 2 days of a storm ending. By the time they get to it, it's turned to typical southern aspect suncrusted snow. It's for the birds IMO....

    There's still a ton of them out west. The company was in business until 2002 as well so I can't imagine it's too hard to get parts from old lifts.

    Ironically enough, the only time I was ever lift...

    This time of year I wouldn't take anything sub 100 to Alta/Snowbird unless you have no other choice. Even on the days in between the storms where the snow gets firm, it's still very edgable.

    I saw that. It's debatable if you're really "first to open" if you shut down during the week. Regardless, I'm not driving 5+ hours for WROD

    Sunday is supposed be very cold in CO. Single digits or less, great for snowmaking. My guess it that A-Basin opens Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Bring on the WROD

    Utah is pretty cool. It's like CO but more accessible, everything is just a lot closer. Wasn't a great ski season by Utah standards, but it was by CO standards which I've grown accustomed to.

    Brianhead has virtually no snow right now. Terrain is extremely limited.

    I second Zion. St. George is a cool little city to explore as well.

    Hopefully Snowbird has some snow come March!
