I would like to get an idea of who might be interested in a ski/board meet in Utah. I was thinking one of the weekends in early December (or late November). Let me know when works for you?
I was thinking Snowbird would be the best option, as they offer the best terrain and snow (usually the lightest powder/most snow due to high altitude, in comparison with other Resorts in the area).
However, if there are no boarders, I would prefer Alta, as I used to work there, and know the mountain like the back of my hand. Alta is also a little cheaper, but if we have snowboarders in the group, Alta would be out of the question.
I did some hiking/skiing (the lift's aren't open yet) at Alta on Thursday, and the snow was superb. If anyone is feeling athletic, and has time off during the week, I will probably be going again a few times. The nice thing about pre-season hiking at Alta, is that snowboarding is allowed.
Here are some pics from Thursday!
It was bright... thus the strange expression
