This is one of the best kept secrets in the west! Skied on 3/18-19 in very warm weather. The snow held up pretty well since there was a decent base. This is one of those "see it ski it" areas. Not really a resort yet but that keeps the crowds away I think. There is no lodging within 5-10 miles. Huntsville or Ogden are the main choices. Ogden is only a 25 minute drive. Good restaurants on 25th street. Anyway, you can't go wrong here. Great runs in the Strawberry Park area. It's around 2400 vertical for each run from this gondola. It seemed like everyone stayed close to the groomers since the snow was so soft. They missed out! Take the tram to the top only if you are a good skier. The entry run from the ridge is pretty hairy. Just remember you can ski almost anywhere on this mountain. It's very open. Give it a shot next season when the snow is hopefully a little better. Also, go across the valley to Powder Mountain for a day trip. 5500 acres and only a few locals. Great "little" area!
