The headwall of Mineral Basin; the stuff on the face of Mt. Baldy; the Peruvian Cirque (mid and upper); the far end of Road to Provo and all the stuff beyond; and that's all still not mentioning what lies beyond the boundary, down-canyon from Gad Valley. All of it in Wasatch Powder. That's all why SnowBird is top 10 in the U.S. for the expert. The family is left with some over-used blues like Chip's Run and the stuff under the various Gad lifts.
2012 isn't off to a good start in Utah, but even so, experts will find the good stuff up high and on north exposures. The intermediates are really the ones who lose out with a few icy, overused groomers.
