..and I don't know what to do. Here's what I can say:
Towards the end of February, I've got a week off, and the means to make it out West.
I've been skiing Breck for as long as I can remember. I know the place like the back of my hand and it doesn't have any in-bounds terrain I'm not confident on, but I'm looking for a change.
I'm thinking about a few places in Colorado, but then again I've already hit that up enough, so Alta is next on my list.. But I don't fucking know. I really don't know what's good outside of Summit County and I've been struggling with finding the balls to throw down somewhere else. Maybe it's because I've always skied by myself and feel safer in a place that I know, but I am looking to push myself and have a dope time.
If you've got a minute, shoot me some advice. Like I said Alta looks like the fuckin Mecca for skiers so it makes sense to head on over, but we'll see. Thanks yo

Alta has zero nightlife unless you are 21+. Skiing/terrain is all time but it only fills up so many hours in the day. Once the lifts stop spinning, you'll most likely be bored off of your ass until it's time to shred again. That being said, if the snow is good enough there's nothing that could make you regret going there.
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
