what a difference a storm can make. epic knee deep pow all day today with light crowds and lifts spinning. Don't even try to compare the ant farm of Hunter Mtn, because there is no comparison. The East is seeing a good start to Winter no doubt, which will be melting down the side of the mountain next month. We've had a rough start here out West, but the season has a long way to go.

11000ft summit but 8000 base so not 4 times the size of east coast playa but west coast is much better skking hands down

Hunter mountain is a bunny slope compared to Snowbird. I'm from the ice-coast (east coast) & ski upstate, VT, & NH for the last 30yrs. Skiing out west is orgasmic. 11,000ft summit is almost 4-times everything here on the east. Utah also has real snow, not man made, huge difference. A powder day out east is a rare occasion, powder days out west are phenomenal. The snow is not as heavy and the terrain is amazing. I highly recommend my fellow ice-coasters to head west at least once. It's wild! ps growing up on the ice-coast and skiing or boarding on frozen corduroy makes you look like an all-star when you get on real snow. Peace y'all!!

yeah snowbird might be the best if you like waiting an hour for the canyon to open. an hour inching up the canyon, and an hour in the tram line, and come to find everything is tracked out when you left SLC at 7am for a foot of snow. Bachelor tops birds snow levels and has the same vertical and a ton of more acreage. It's good to be here
