    Sounds cool, living in the manhattan area $140 doesnít even make me flinch lol.

    It's just outside the base area off to the side of the sunnyside lift so not a unique location. We decided not to do it because it didn't sound that special. Just hit the buffet at St. B's instead.

    Whats on the menu? I didn't see anything except its a 4 course meal for $140 and you pay more for drinks. I would not be buying it without knowing what the 4 course meal is.

    yeah, its like 30 yards from the lift. Maybe you walk around in circles to get there?


    That buffet was money.

    The Library bar/lounge area next to the fire was nice too.

    Well, if it was during the time that Deer Valley was running the place, I imagine it would be pretty nice. Sounds neat, but that is a bit pricey.

    OK, well thanks for nothing. A little googling found this:

    BTW, the trail map for Solitude completely sucks (worst ever from James Niehues?). The trail map makes it look like the top of Summit Express is much higher than Powderhorn II. In fact, Summit Express is only 200 ft higher. And the map makes it look like Milk Run is a short cutover. But it's actually a badass run with a decent amount of vert.

    I don't hate their trail map. While not ideal, it is often hard to depict any sprawling western resort the same way you can draw a Sugarloaf trail map, for example.

    Summit and Powderhorn are on a ridge of sorts, so from the orientation you have standing in the village, the summit lift is a good bit beyond Powderhorn. I can't really think of another way to portray that.
