    If you really want to try it, make sure it's a weekday, and NOT a school holiday. Or you'll hate it like the rest of us! ;)

    I don’t have problem with the snow. But I must say the crowd was awful!

    My first trip to MC was a great one. Storm paralyzed the whole metro NY area, and my office was closed. So I drove to MC for...

    What I really SHOULD be doing is cut back on skiing downhill (yes, sacrilege!) when condition is just so so, travel less, and stay close to home to ski Mohonk!

    But I guess I'm still stuck on the...

    I must say that's a highly personal view of skiing out west.

    For example, I ski out west for the snow, not so much the terrain. So the lack of terrifying steep in Vail or Park City isn't even an...

    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.

    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 tried to hit the xc trails near downhill areas. Couldn’t work up enough motivation so far. It didn’t help most xc trails in alpine resorts tend to be rather boring.

    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.
