MikeStreeterWe thought about mammoth but it was a haul from the airport and various mountains to go to. In the pc area there alot of mountains to go to. What is the best mountain to go to in the pc area
dan4060I know you want park, but I would consider Snowbird and Alta. They don't have great parks, but for steeps and snow they are unbelievable. I know you want park but I would consider going somewhere with big mountain terrain. You can ski park anytime, you should take advantage of being out west and go somewhere with steeps.
I ski Mammoth 3 weekends a month and it would fit your criteria, steeps and park, but I understand the distance to the airport issue. You can fly into Mammoth but it is pretty sketchy so I would not want to do it. Park City is cool, but the terrain is not as good as Snowbird or Alta. If you are going to rent a car you could stay in the Park City area and hit both PC and Alta/Bird. I know you want park but you really should consider taking advantage of terrain you can't get at home. Like I said, you can ski park anytime you want.
.lenconThis for sure. Besides there's a bunch of natural hits at Alta/bird so you'll get your jumps in. No rails really, maybe a few at the bird I'm not sure, but yeah take advantage of the terrain man. You won't regret it.
brett_fisherutah is the place alta/snowbird on the pow days and then theres brighton pc and snow basin for park .
.lenconOh yeah bfish has a point. Brighton is pretty good cause they have some sick terrain and a good park.
250rdefinitely not whistler. that place sucks.
MikeStreeterAre any of those mountains skiers only because my dads a boarder.
M.MYa don't come, youll be soo disappointed having everything at one resort.
Titsandwich11alta is skier only. snowbird is not
beyond that you dont have much to worry about. the only other two mountains i can think of that are skier only are mad river glen and.... taos, new mexico? i forget
mr-mcsteezeis Mammoth that good? Everytime i hear something about Mammoth its that the winds were too bad to do anything
.lenconPretty expensive to fly into SV tho.
.HEROBig Sky is incredible. Amazing terrain, no lift lines, and the people there are so chill.
