    Zand, I certainly hope that you were NOT in BCC today. I drove up to Brighton to ski a few hours this evening. Absolute zoo. I have never seen that many cars up there. At least for me nearly everyone was leaving.

As is spas, shopping, etc.... Prolly wont do the booze tastings though!
    CONGRATS!!!!!

    Utah is very, um, baby friendly. I mean the LDS faith is big on girls getting married young and having lots of kids.....

    It is hard to say, but anecdotally A LOT of restaurants and tourist places have seen a decline...because folks thought that the law went into effect LAST year.


    Plus cheap mass tranny or free public tranny if you're in Park City.
    That said, how many first-time tourists know this?
    We are NOT going to start a discussion about public transit in Park City.

    Thanks. It's wreaking havoc on my 2019 skiing though. I imagine it only gets worse.

    Two words: ONE Wasatch.

    If that ever happens the entire front/back Wasatch area will become an absolute recreation juggernaut.

    The first couple years you negotiate with your wife for time off. Third or fourth year you get very familiar with the beginner slopes!

    I've been reading old threads here, already learned the, "buy one lift ticket and use an extra zip tie" trick.

    Yes, this!

    Im in the beginner slope stage now. I've gotten to know McIntyre very well with our 3 year old son this winter and have only managed a couple of big boy days. By the time he is ready for the big hill days our 7 week old daughter will have me back on the beginner hill again. I figure I'm about 8-9 years away from regularly enjoying the type of skiing I once did. Lol

    Congrats BG!

    Yeah, RFID is putting an end to that. Some places (Bretton Woods?) offer a parental lift ticket, so the parents can switch off and take turns watching the little ones.
