PimpChimpinTahoe all day. Utah is having a terrible season. 1 inch of snow in January
VitiligoI’d say Tahoe. If you are skiing weekdays then I’d say hit up Squaw and alpine. Squaw is massive and towards the end of Feb we usually get a decent amount of snow. Hit up upper mountain and take a full mountain run as a warmup. 2,800ft vert in one run with super fun side trails and hits on the way down.
What’s your budget like? Where do you plan on staying? Hotel, air bnb? Hmu if you want some more suggestions on stuff (if you do choose Tahoe)
yungspliffyHow about 0 inches of snow in January for Tahoe
ObwonWe ended up choosing SLC, got a good deal on bnb in Sandy. Going to do 3days at snowbird 2 at brighton. We're skiing tuesday-sat.
ObwonUpdate: So we did Tues Brighton, wed snowbird, Thurs Brighton, today snowbird I'm in the car on my way to Ogden right now, we are headed to powder mountain tomorrow.
Snowbird was gnarly. Two Blackhawk helicopters crashed in the back bowl, mineral basin Tuesday and was closed. They opened it right as we got to the top on Wednesday so we had two days worth of fresh and our drop in was deep, visibility was low but you just had to trust yourself, face shot kind of powder. Had a great time back there lapping baldy.
Today we traversed/hiked out of bounds at snowbird off mineral basin and had a few pretty epic runs. We had to hike out to the lift too absolutely worth it.
We got 6-8 at Brighton day 1 lightest powder I have ever skied. But you could like blow through it to crust sometimes. We had a blast found some sick pillow lines in trees little drops everywhere off of Milly. Definitely like a homie vibe there. Could see if there was just a bit more snow it would be unreal. We went back on day 3 and we're trying to find this kinda land bridge off milly to a zone that looked pretty untouched but we got cliffed out both tries. We had fun took in some cool sights, and had good snow up to the cliff bands. It was bluebird got some real good photos.
We had our best runs at snowbird it was also steeper more difficult. Brighton was more like we found stashes, had an awesome time, liked vibe. Overall couldn't be happier with Utah so far. Stoke is high, can't wait to check out powder mountain and do some cat skiing tomorrow!
