    11/13 at Killington, at one point they had Superstar and the Snowdon Triple + 6 Pack spinning for testing I assume so it felt like midwinter.

    You can walk in 5 minutes as far as the cat skiing. Complete rip-off. Compared to what you get (for $5!) at Keystone, it's really eye opening

    Do not (repeat DO NOT) waste a day at Powmow if you could go to Snowbasin. The reason Powmow keeps snow is that it's flat with old, slow lifts, so no one (in their right minds) goes there when there's great areas around. Only issue with Snowbasin is that sometimes it gets clouds around the Strawberry gonjola, so pick your days(s) right.

    Also be advised that Brighton is a real boarders hill with all of the negative connotations that conveys. Almost got hit (multiple times), A-holes with backpack speakers, just a real crap-show of why Alta is so pleasant.

    Once you go to the Bird, you'll never be able to do least coast skiing again.

    cool. ive been to all the utah places many times except for powmow and snowbasin. i'm familiar with brighton. i dont mind snowboarders whatsoever. i like the sidecountry off of snake and great western. alta/snowbird is great but i'm cool with living in brooklyn and skiing the east as long as i get my 50 day seasons with 20+ in the west. having cake and eating it. etc.

    At Snowbasin there's only trails if you want them. You can stay off-piste virtually all day. Stay on either the John Paul chair (and the tin can up to the downhill start) or Strawberry gondola. AND, the lodges and food is worth stopping got lunch for.



    Only bother with Powmow if you want to know what's overrated in Utah.

    I'm surprised to hear this. I have heard that Powmow preserves powder exceptionally well, and with the low skier density it was a place worth checking out.

    Are the snow cat rides actually so short that you could hike the same terrain in 5 minutes or 10 minutes or some short amount of time?

    Agreed. I thought Brighton was a blast. Id love to try both Powmow and Snowbasin someday.

    I started my season today at Mountain Creek in Jersey. Originally they had said that they would open this weekend with a hike park but yesterday I got an email saying that they were spinning the Sugar Slope lift.

    Since I have a season pass and it's down the road I had to go. It's an anomaly to ski in November, especially mid-November, in NJ so I couldn't pass it up. Sugar is the beginner trail at MC but I lapped it for an hour and a half, it was just great to start my season.20191116_103713.jpg20191116_102356.jpg
