Lots of Lifts to Open

By Kendall Dec 22, 2007

There are 3 major lift openings tomorrow.  If only I could clone myself twice to hit all three of them.  If you happen to get to any of these openings please chime in on the comments and let me know how it was.

  1. Snowbasin - The John Paul high speed quad is set to open tomorrow morning.  With 13" last night and 14" the night before  it's sure to be a great opening.  John Paul is one of the steepest elevation gaining high speed quads in the country and certainly one of my favorite places to find stashes of powder
  2. Powder Mountain - Little did I realize just how much the Hidden Lake high speed quad would change the feel of Powder Mountain when it opened last year but oh my, it's worth the trip if you've not been there lately.  If you happen to hit Powder Mountain on a weekday when a majority of the locals are giving the man his due, you'll be lapping Hidden Lake like it's your own private resort
  3. Deer Valley - The day has come for the new Lady Morgan high speed quad to finally open.  Introducing 200 new acres of skiing on 5 runs this east facing lift will surely be a powder stash worth finding your way to.  Just beyond the Empire Lift on the western edge of Deer Valley, Lady Morgan could become your mistress.

I'm headed to Deer Valley to check out the new terrain.  I caught a glimpse of it from Park City Mountain Resort today and it is calling to me.  Like I said, if you happen to hit John Paul at Snowbasin or Hidden Lake at Powder Mountain leave a comment below on how good it was.
