    2020 SKI Magazine's Top 50 Resorts in NA

    I just got my SKI magazine in the mail yesterday where they rank the overall Top 30 resorts in the West and Top 20 in the East, with some random subcategory rankings sprinkled in for good measure. As always, there are some head-scratchers. Overall Top 10 in West: 1) Aspen/Snowmass 2) Sun...

    2018-19 Pugski Epic Resort Tour

    The 2018-2019 season was a whirlwind -- dare we say “Epic” -- tour for Team Pugski. Tricia and I were all over the western United States at almost 25 resorts, including more than a half-dozen Epic resorts. Even though these areas are under the Vail umbrella in one way or another, each has its...

    Anti Vail Sentiment

    I'm a new skier. I have been to Heavenly, Squaw, Sierra at Tahoe, Park City, Beaver Creek and Northstar. As such, I don't have a lot of first hand observations on what makes a ski area better than other. I'm curious why there is a lot of anti Vail sentiment on this forum. I think their pass...

    Girlfriend Skiing Considerations

    Here's a generic resort suggestion thread that may be more of a fun mental exercise than anything. Me and a buddy are throwing around the idea of a late February to March ski trip. The big catch? It's a couples ski trip. Ability levels are as follows: Me: Enjoy anything blue or black...

    Utah Tips for first-timers in Utah/SLC?

    We're visiting SLC for the week heading into the MLK weekend. Any tips for us first-timers out there? Best ski areas to ski in, best rental shops for good/cheap demos, what skis to bring -- wide, easy flexing skis because there will be lots of soft snow on-piste in Jan or regular carving skis...

    Utah SLC area vs Copper-Aspen in February?

    I asked this in the Aspen thread too, but I want to get the opinion of you Utah fans too ;-) Would your pick be Copper/Aspen-Snowmass or Salt Lake City area for Presidents’ Day week? Why one over the other? Ikon Base pass. Skiing Friday 2/15 - Saturday 2/23.

    Utah Park City or Whistler?

    i have a conundrum... A buddy of mine is likely going to Park City, for a week, on business at the end of February. He has graciously offered for me to tag along if I like. My expenses would only be my airfare and some food. His business would pick up the car rental, hotel, etc. so obviously...

    Utah Park City in March

    A friend is thinking of doing a bachelorette party in Park City/Deer Valley in March. She is wondering what snow conditions are generally like there that time of year. (I know they don't have a lot of snow now, but what would it be like in a normal year in terms of snow and termperature?) Thanks.

    Utah Big Cottonwood Canyon conditions?

    There’s a nice thread on the LCC conditions, but someone must be skiing BCC too right? Care to share the conditions? Any pics? Thanks! Tjaard PS, If conditions are bad, it might be time for a lesson, any instructor recommendations at Solitude, Brighton, or Deer Valley?

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Vail Galaxy of Resorts: Part 1 of 3

    I’ve had the opportunity to visit a bunch of Vail Resorts in North America over the last four years and explore the full gamut of great experiences they offer. However, I’m going to set the tone of this discussion by using the words "Vail" and "frugal" in the same sentence. The Vail galaxy of...

    Should I be worried?! SLC trip...

    So, I have a trip planned to SLC Jan 6-13 and one to Banff the last week of Feb/first couple days of March. Originally I was undecided as to where to go first but the general consensus was SLC earlier..... Looking at on the snow, Sunshine is almost 100% open, meanwhile Snowbird only has 10/169...

    Good resort with easy blues?

    Hello, My wife and I have been skiing for a while, and normally go to PCMR every year. But I was looking to go somewhere different just for some variety. Nothing wrong with PCMR, but 7 years in a row, it's time to try somewhere else at least once. My wife doesn't like steep runs, so nice...

    Utah Where to eat in Park City?

    My son and I will be doing a quick ski trip (only three ski days :( ) to Park City the first week of January. I realize there are dozens of places to eat dinner there. I'd be grateful for any recommendations. Neither of us is a big drinker (one per night usually), although we like pub...

    Utah 2017-18 Utah Weather & Conditions

    The first real winter storm is about to come through. Warm southwest flow will affect totals in an unpredictable way but models call for 6-12" above 8,000 feet with potential for 12-18" today and tomorrow. It's a relief to see precipitation as it's been an extremely dry summer and fall.

    SLC Resorts or?

    Running low on time and wanting to get something in the books for this seasons ski trip! I've searched and searched and searched some more, from Europe to Canada and all over the US. Still can't really decide. I'm now kinda leaning toward flying into SLC, quick non stop from Charlotte and...

    Utah Changes to Park City trail ratings

    Just noticed that Park City has made a number of changes to their trail ratings at Park City. There is no longer a double blue trail rating designation. Most of the previous double blues are now designated as black diamond. Meanwhile, all of the previous single black diamond rated trails on the...
