||Are you staying in Park City or in the SLC Valley? If you're staying in Park City, then riding the resorts in the Cottonwood Canyons (Brighton, Solitude, Snowbird and Alta) is going to be kind of a lot of driving... as would be going up to PowMow and Snowbasin. If you're staying in Park City there are 3 resorts accessable to SKIERS: PCMR, Canyons and Deer Vally. If you are a snowboarder, you cannot ride Dear Valley (nor Alta). Depending on if you are going to have your own transportation and where you are staying while you are out here, I would plan your trip accordingly. PCMR and Canyons are both amazing. Canyons is Utah's largest resort has has the most versitile terrain. Snowbird is a great place as well if you wanna try STEEP and deep. Brighton is a local mountain with no resort/hotel for a reason--to keep tourists away. Solitude gets great powder and is NEVER crowded. Have fun out here.

||price drop... I need this to go I know it's the wrong time of year to sell boards, but this is a great deal on a practically new deck. It's in near-new shape and it retails for $400. If you want a poppy, but very soft park board (no chatter til you're hauling at racing speeds)... you want the subzero. This board compares to the NS Evo (same shape and flex... but the nitro is lighter weight).

||HAHA did anyone make it to the end of both ponds?!!? We have a 100ft pond skim at Canyons and it's insane. I can't imagine how hard making it to the end would be with a transition in the middle! HAHA. And that's the cleanest looking pond ever! Freakin swimming pool.

||when I build kickers I take a bucket (like a big rubbermade storage-type tub) Now... if you're really hiking somewhere to build a kicker, this isn't efficient, but when I'm in town and building something where I don't have to treck very far... this works GREAT Fill the tub with snow and pack it in... drag to where you're building your jump, dump over... like building a sand castle... shaping the mini jump after a few tubs full of snow is a lot less work (or at least feels like it) We do this in the park near my house where there's a hill kids go sledding on... we'll build a small kicker and then usually set up a lip/transition to get on a picnic table or something

|| No Park City. I thought Park City was known for it's park. Guess that goes to show how much I know about resorts with parks. Considering I don't ride park I don't feel too bad. [/QUOTE] I thought Park City was known for its park too! Anyways, Mammoth has the biggest park in the west I believe with its huge kickers, superpipe and half pipe. Bear would come next then Mt High. I haven't gone to June and didn't know they had a park so that might be worth checking out. [/QUOTE] PCMR has GREAT parks... but I was just sharing what this years "official list" had to say... Park City and Canyons both have super fun parks with incredible variety. Brighton's park is much more urban in feel but it's still fun (they're progressional park has all sorts of fun stuff to learn on).

||As I already told your friend... snowboarding is all about having fun. When people are super stuck on progressing a certain skill/new trick within a timeline it can sometimes take away from the enjoyment of living in the moment (which may be riding an amazing powder day)... since Tahoe is getting dumped on and he (like myself) is still really learning to ride the deep stuff, it can be tiring and a person can get really antsy to work on something different. As Scorer said, we really shouldn't judge others by what they want to ride... Personally I wouldn't give up a pow day to ride park, but sometimes it is hard to resist the gravitational pull of the park!! With that...the park isn't groomed on most pow days so on those days, the magnitism has no effect on me :-) You'll find me in the trees. To sum it up... in a few clichés: To each their own... Sieze the day... Live fast, die happy
