    I've only skied utah for twice, and there wasnt fresh snow - I've heard that Utah is better than CO when there is snow, its just less consistent. Accurate?

    Yeah Romney, not the mountains. Also, Colorado has expressed they have no interest in Olympic logistics. Championships for skiing are regularly held at Beaver Creek and other CO mountains. The Olympic team trains at Beaver and the Springs is the epicenter of Olympic offices for the US teams.

    People will always argue about why their favorite area is better than the others, but for a guy who grew up skiing the NightHawk at Hawks Nest, on sheets of ice under the lights and snowblowers, it's all pretty damn good out west. When I consider taking a big trip out west, what I'm thinking about is cost, ease of travel, and good variety of terrain for my family, more than whether one spot might have marginally "better" snow than another. Park City usually wins out although I'm going to re-do the research for next winter. I've been thinking of hitting Sun Valley (Idaho) - heard great things.

    Thought it was because 70 couldn't hand the traffic. Logistics would be a disaster - SLC definitely a lot more convenient.

    Cannot even imagine how epic the blue sky days will be out there this weekend.

    I 100% agree with this. When you don't get to go often from NC, any western skiing is 20x better so I don't care about getting the BEST. I love Loveland for when I'm in Denver for work and can steal one half day, even though I know it sucks compared to everything else.

    Who wants to go skiing this weekend out west? Which of you rich wake folks has a house/condo I can stay at? I can get to Denver or SFO (Tahoe) for free on airline miles but no friends can go on such late notice.

    I used to live in Telluride and still visit 1-2 times per year. All of the higher end restaurants are very good, below are some of my favorite spots to eat and drink.

    Nice Restaurants:

    The Sheridan Chop House - steakhouse, great bar special, order a flatliner to drink, also, best brunch in town

    La Marmotte - Great french bistro

    Allreds - Happy hour for the view

    Best Cheaper spots:

    Brown Dog Pizza - Detroit style pizza is great

    Corner House - off the main road, will probably be less crowded, cheap pitchers of pbr

    Breakfast:

    The Butcher & Baker - incredible bfast burrito

    On the mountain food/drink:

    Guiseppes - off of lift 9, order the black bean saute

    Gorono's - go for a few beers to end the day, normally there is live music

    Bars:
    Sheridan Opera House Bar

    The Buck

    Music:

    Normally there will be some very good live music in town, ask around to see who is playing.
