Spring Break Trip Planning
Hey guys, I need some advice on where to go for spring break. Take into consideration the time of the year. I would be leaving March 21st. I really was hoping Whistler, but my dad is leaning towards Utah because it's easier to get to and kind of cheaper. Where should I go, Whistler, Utah, or Coloardo. I want poweder, glades, cliffs, and steeps because I'm from Ohio and I've never experienced a real mountain. I also want a sick park for one or two of the days for filming and shit, because my park in Ohio sucks hella bad too. I'll be going for around a week so yeah. What places get pow towards the end of March? Thanks.
Utah's great for everything you said, but it's spread across various mountains, with the powder at Alta & Snowbird and the park in Park City...
Whistler's got it all combined, but keep in mind it's a) expensive b) crowded. I'm not sure how crowded the Utah resorts are

stay in breck, or summit county and ski, abasin (sick ski area) breck, keystone, and vail
if you search around you can go there really cheap
good luck, you will have an awesome time no matter where you go
I like skiing the way it was before snowboarding was invented. (Glen Plake) Not cool Glen Not cool
Colorado seems lind of flat and not like huge mountain like. That's just from pictures and stuff, I could be wrong. I'm leaning towards Utah since Whistler is so expensive. I could hit up Brighton, Snowbird, Park City, The Canyons, Snowbasin, and anywhere else I want. Maybe I could saty for like more than a week since the hotel is cheap. The lift tickets are soooooo expensive though.
Colorado is not flat. I go to vail each year for 10 days, but I don't know how much powder you will get in colorado at the end of march, you might get a lot of snow and you might not get any fresh snow. I think you'd be better off going to utah.
in no way is colorado flat, if you come out and stay somewhere in summit co. you wont be more than 30 minutes from 5-6 resorts worth going to. but utah is a sick choice too, i love the canyons and alta/snowbird is amazing. also hit up solitude if you go there, def some sick terrain

Well, yeah. Whistler is all in one... parks & pow all at one resort... it's expensive, but you only need one pass. Utah, you've got Snowbird, Alta, and Park City, but they're separate mountains, and the lift tickets aren't cheap either... and transportation costs...

I'm 15 so I won't be going to night clubs and it's also a family trip. I wish I could go to Alta, but i snowboard (and skiing some this year). I might be going to Whistler in the summer for camp and/or public park riding. Any other suggestions? I think I'm set on Utah now. Should I stay in Salt Lake City, by the edge of the mountains in Salt Lake City, or at a resort? Oh and does anyone know how to get to the bottom of Chad's Gap from Alta?
i used to be ONTARIORIPPER
The only part that was a joke was the last part.....I do want to look at Chad's Gap in awe though.
At my college I saw this advertisement poster for spring break ski trips. They had one for somewhere in CA. That looks cool, to go on a spring break ski trip with a lot of other college students. If you're interested, PM me and I'll get the poster the next time I'm in that building and send you the info.
If anyone ever told you that I give a damn, they damned well told you wrong!
The other day I was eating Starbursts and watching TV, and then a Starburst commercial came on. I was like, damn, that's profound.
aaaaaaaahahahaha this might just be that kid again who goes and shows all of NS up
your randomness is unacceptable
breckenridge for park.
vail for BC
im from western NY so i was in the same bind as you on deciding where i want to experience some real mountain skiing. I skied breck and vail, and it was the best decision i have ever made.
