Our fifth episode takes us to Utah, where we flew into dense snows, high winds, and trying times. Powder Mountain closed their gates by 7 a.m. on our first day, shortly followed by Snowbasin where we stood stranded with purchased lift tickets and the entire resort reluctant to refund us. After the first day washed out, we headed to Brighton after 8″ of light snow fell overnight. Then it was back to Powder Mountain for 2 days where we searched all around for fresh turns and eagerly awaited the opening of the Paradise lift.
