    powMow DOES preserve powder well - because it's the last place to go when there's a dump. Old slow lifts and flat terrain (I had to pole through it once because the vertical was nonexistant).



    Truly - the cat rides are that short. I took my kids, and we get in, the thing starts, goes up a bit and stops. We looked at each other, figuring that they were waiting for something - nope. Get out! Holy $6^(t. Wow, way to get ripped off). There's a decent bowl area down, then you have to take a long (leg debilitating) track back to wait for the school bus to pick you up. Really.

    Look I love throwback areas, always being a hudge fan of Magic, MRG, AB etc. but PowMow is just a dump. Why anyone would go there with all the great areas in UT is mind boggling.

    At best it's a quarter of the distance of the $5 cat ride at Keystone.

    Go to Snowbasin - Strawberry then through the gate on the right after the left turn, and while it's not massive pucker time, it's pretty real. Same with the downhill start area from the top of the tin can - NOTHING like that at PowMow. Nothing. Nothing

    Really enjoyed the last 2 days at K. Happy with my new Kore 93's. Feeling good.

    Holy crap there is a ton of snow on SS, Skyelark, and Bittersweet.

    I just got day 2 in at Mountain Creek. Pretty much the same as last week except I lapped it for 2 hours.

    Gore was unexpectedly excellent yesterday! They had a green open top to bottom as well as a blue cruiser t2b. And they had the Topridge chair open serving black terrain. Topridge headwall was a blast:

    No lines, mostly ski on lifts all day. No megapass crowds. Very impressed with Gore's early season effort.
