3 Where would be a good spot to get a house? I saw some near Granite, Racquet Club and the mouth of the Canyons (plus some up near the resorts). Everything seem so close (compared to CO) so I don't think driving a little would be bad, we are planning on renting a SUV.

SB.com Rules! Keep the info coming...


Some pretty sound advice here. The only thing i can add is that i would stay clear of PC. Less snow (and that;s saying something) and expensive. Rentals are down. you can haggle a house up in BCC for a song.

Despite all you hear about the Wasatch crowds, if you're coming Monday to Friday and touring and can't find some damn good (safe) riding for you and your squad, even this season, you aren;t trying anywhere near hard enough. My guess is you'll be stoked.

We got a sweet VRBO house in Cottonwood Heights.

I think we will get our free 1/2 day at PC/Canyons on Monday when we fly in, and thats all the resort riding I think i'm gonna do.

And if anyone wants to hang out for beer and food they are all welcome!
Check out this kitchen, oh and we can cook pretty good too...

Park City sucked today :cry: Bulletproof and thin, fortunately there was no people on the hill and my ticket cost 20 cents for my print out at the public library...

Hit me up if you want to ride this week...

Pedro I didn't realize you were in town already. I would have invited you on my moonlight tour last night. Always next time. Are you here this weekend? I gotta work during the week unfortunately.

Trip was great! Snow was still pretty nice and pretty deep on sheltered north facing slopes. House was bitchin' and I am totally jealous of how close you SLC guys are to the mountains!

We didn't hit any real big lines, but I am OK with that considering my age and the Avy conditions. The Wasatch could definitely use some more snow, but so could damn near everybody in North America.

We had no avalanches and no injuries, with the exception of a bloody knuckle and an inadvertent elbow to the head!

I will be returning to the Wasatch sometime soon to try to sample some of "The greatest snow on earth" when it is more plentiful.

Met some very cool people too. Turns out the coolest guy in Utah is "UTAH"! Thanks again buddy for all you help and advice. You are the man, and your always welcome in Colorado!

Thanks to everyone who gave us advise on our trip. SB.com Rules (as always...) :thumpsup:

-Pedro
