wide open terrain, few lines
slow / smaller chairlifts, smaller mtn
Just back from 5th visit to Utah, stayed at Canyons, but I like to check out other mountains. We went on a day with unusually bad weather- warm/ wet. Despite this, we skied the summit chair all day and had surprisingly good powder.
It is a smaller mountain [ 1/3 the size of canyons], which has both positives and negatives- because its less well known,has smaller [ seems like local] crowds and has slower/ smaller chairlifts. But ,as a result, retains its powder much longer, less tracked out, and is much cheaper. People [ex at the base] were very friendly and helpful; ski school was excellent- I put 2 of my children in it and they learned more in 1 day than 2 days worth at Canyons. Small but new/nice base village. Terrain was good, but I did not get to explore the mtn well. Overall a great albeit smaller mountain, which is definitely worth a day trip/ if you want a change of pace from glitzy/ expensive park City. Probably amazing on a good powder day
