It pays to be a Fan of the Yeti on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ski-Utah-Yeti/354553135430?ref=ts ). Just ask Claire Lordon (r) and Elizabeth Moody (l) who are currently enjoying an all expenses paid ski trip in Utah. Through the Ski Utah Yeti Fan page, Claire told the Yeti why she loves to ski and ride in Utah, stating: "Utah is the best place ever. Seriously, the powder is unbelievable. . . . . the snow, atmosphere, and accessibility is far superior to anywhere else in the world." Her comment stood out amongst the rest, and now Claire and Liz are in Utah, ripping a three-foot spring storm cycle. The Yeti made a few turns with the ladies at The Canyons and asked: "Are you excited to have a snowy spring break? Claire responded without hesitation, "It's a great thing to get one day of skiing under the sun, but now we get to experience the powder which is going to be awesome. I can't wait!" Get out there and take advantage of this amazing late season snow.

Not only are the conditions equivalent to Colorado, but the prices are lower and the crowds are much smaller.
