      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

I'll be at Snowbird with Sailor Wiff from 1/21 - 1/28, staying in the Lodge. I'm planning on doing the Snowbird/Alta lift ticket one day, but are there any runs that I should seek out or avoid? Also, the "village" looks relatively limited. Anything to do after a day (hopefully) of fresh powder?

 

Thanks!

What to avoid depends on how good a skier you are. Nightlife is somewhat limited in Snowbird but you can find bars. Buy some beer & wine and hang out in your condo after dinner.

Snowbird gets skiied out REALLY fast.

 

Look for the "keyhole" from Alta to Snowbird on the frontside. Hike out of Catherines area (Alta) and ski back to lift.

 

Nightlife is down the canyon, spend an evening in Park City for best time.

Nightlife at Snowbird is limited. Drive down into town a night or two. You should also spend a day / dinner / pub at Park City if you havent been there. Bit of a drive - but worth it. (Designated Driver or take a shuttle!) Ski one day at Alta.

 

There used to be a deal where you could back country ski from Park City to Alta but it's been a while since ive lived there. Idea is I think you will enjoy mixingh it up a bit then 6-7 days at Snowbird. They all are great.
