    I'm still hopeful there will be a breakthrough in vaccine or testing or something that will allow a fairly normal ski season next winter. At a minimum, I'm counting on some good weekday, lift-served...

    The LCC/BCC road situation is getting worse, but it's still not so bad that I'd advise people to skip it, by any means. Trailboss would be the best guy to comment. I've spent most of the last two...

    I agree with this. Build the gondi up LCC, put dedicated parking for it at base of canyon. Put terminals at Snowbird, Alta, and continue it over to connect with Sol/Bright. This could help reduce...

    That time frame is always a bit of a crap shoot. Do you have flexibility? Can you make your pick of destinations a week or two before arrival? Are you limited to certain resorts/season passes? ...

    Yeah, not looking too good that we might make the drive up there from SLC. It would mostly be a symbolic thing anyway, to bring closure to a season cut short. I got in 28 ski days and would have...
