I've just finished reading november's issue of ski magazine that talks about 10 best mountains you've never skied.
As it happens I've skied most of them - here is what I'd tell fiends who were trying to decide which one to head to.
This is one of my personal favorites - but then again I also like alta and mad river Glenn. This resort has a simplicity that is quickly vanishing. Don't look for million dollar water parks and costumed performers - just 1970 era condo lodging and really nice runs. I don't remember great vertical but rather hero run after hero run. If your kids like to ski bring them. If your spouse want to shop and spa - leave them behind.
A don't miss destination. Hardest part is finding a place to stay nearby. I recommend staying in SLC proper at one of their cheap hotels - then using a rental car to get there.
This was the first place I ever encountered true Sierra Cement. One of the deapest and most aweful ski experiences of my life. Cool vibe and some nic terrain, but as a destination I'd pick somewhere else unless I was already nearby.
Epic and great. One of the best places around the Tahoe area. If you like to ski and want to be near the Tahoe area, this is a don't miss.
Seriously? You've get all the drawbacks of Vermont ski areas plus the drive minus ameneties. If it is a powder day and you can arrange to stay for a while and you don't have a family, then go for it. The lack of crowds ensures you will have fresh pow all day long, but for my $$ I'd pick a less out of the way place. Or just fly to Utah.
