Full review

Like steep trees? I do. Try yo-yoing Gad2 lift and ski or ride between the lift and the boundary.

Like steep bowls? I do. Try yo-yoing Little Cloud and ski or ride anything off the end of Road to Provo, especially going as far to skier's left as you can.

Like chutes? I do. It's bad new to try to repeat on a busy day, but ski or ride the Peruvian Cirque.

If you just want the very best powder, then on powder days held to Alta (unless you're a boarder) and climb and traverse and climb somemore and traverse a little further and you'll find the best Wasatch powder at Alta -- that little extra elevation makes a difference. But if you want to maximize your vertical feet actually skiing or riding that powder, Snowbird is the place.
