Snowbird Ski Resort Review

Written by Andrew Mitchell   
Wednesday, 11 February 2009
  

Introduction

If Henry T Ford had invented skiing he would have surely designed Snowbird.  Designed for the mass market, the resort of Snowbird has all the charm of a concrete bunker designed to withstand a direct nuclear hit.  If the concrete box that houses the cable car (somewhat confusingly referred to as a ‘tram’) doesn’t raise an architectural eyebrow then the shipping container that greets you at the top will surely drop a designer jaw.  Charming it aint.

Solitude Ski Resort Review

Written by Andrew Mitchell   
Wednesday, 11 February 2009
  

Introduction

Located just 40 minutes from Salt Lake City along the very scenic Big Cottonwood Canyon Road, the Solitude ski resort lives up to its name. On first sight one can be forgiven for thinking they’ve been transported over the Atlantic to a small village somewhere in Swiss alps. Solitude easily outdoes its neighboring resorts on charm.

Alta Ski Resort Review

Written by Andrew Mitchell   
Tuesday, 10 February 2009
  

Introduction

35 Minutes out of SLC lies a throwback to the original days of skiing where men were men and the skis long wooden sticks with leather bits.  Alta might not pamper to the fake tanned Deer Valley set but is does provide a good old fashioned skiing experience.  An intimate resort with only 7 lifts serving 2200 acres of skiable terrain, Alta is not the biggest or most modern resort going around, but it was the first resort in the area (Utah) and one can’t help but to be reminded of how it must have been before Mr Gortex and his Nylon brothers came along.  Respect for the pioneering techniques established early last century is the main reason why snow boarders are not welcome at Alta.
