It's actually 600ml of water, a scoop of dried cow juice and 3 beans from a Mexican cantina floor.
20oz is about 600ml. Nearly a bucket.
But agreed that it’s expensive.
You bought the premium stuff?
Now that's what shits me.
Just be thankful you're not paying for ski school.....!
A$400 + tip per person for group lessons at Park City at the moment. No multi-day discounts, no half days, no other options.
Or put another way, nearly $9k to put 2 kids in ski school for 10 days!!
As for coffee, best not to look I suppose!
Surface looks creamy.
Madness. Meanwhile just over the hill at Alta you can get a two hour group lesson for $80 bucks. I think that’s a fair deal. I’m sure most people would make improvements with 5 two hour lessons with the same instructor. And you get to work on the instructors tips when you’re skiing with your family/mates later in the day.
Campos available in park city.
Snowbird carpark @Normo
Them cars need moar snow!
Last day skiing in Utah was spent at Snowbird. The snow stayed nice and soft all day. Each day has started overcast here with the sun coming out in the afternoon.
Lunch was spent at very nice place down at the base of the hill overlooking snow covered pines.
After a great days skiing, it was off to skimo for some more retail therapy.
Tomorrow is a rest day, then it’s onto Whistler to finish up on next week. Forecast there is a lot of snow, followed by some smaller falls of snow. More to come
So fave hill from Utah leg?
Any hill in the Cottonwood
Some random thoughts to end this trip report:
I’m very glad I didn’t have to drive this time here. The turn right on red, the four way stop signs, driving on the right side of the road, the middle lane bordered each side by double lines., the amount of traffic .. no thanks !
We had a small herd of deer walk past the house this morning; beats kangaroos for a change
With shopping there is too much choice eg a whole isle for snack bars
I’ve developed a fondness for Quaker Oats for breakfast
The Cottonwoods are a fantastic place to go skiing, the snow is soooo creamy and smooth with a consistent surface from top to bottom
My wallet is considerably lighter due to the excellent outdoor/ski shops
The kids doing freestyle skiing here are the best I’ve seen anywhere
My Utah hosts were the best ever, I had a fantastic week
Wait until you see moose. On the ski runs.
The thing that gets me with the driving is the lack of cat’s eyes / reflectors at night.
I love the turn right on the red. I nearly pulled a few lefties when we first got home out of habit. I think 4 way stops work really well also.
Who gives way on 4 way stops. Is it first to arrive goes first?
Same as a roundabout. In Australia you give way to the right.
We have 4 way stop signs in NSW.
So given a significant number of Australian’s cannot use a roundabout properly, 4 way stop signs sound like a Darwininan adventure for us.
It's first to arrive, which causes me all sorts of problems. By the time I realise I'm at a 4 way stop it is too late to work out who was there first.
Nope! Give way to the right.
Yep so you revert to give way to the right!!
Combination of both
I’ve been working on the first to arrive assumption while checking carefully before moving.
Yeah so in Legs example he gives way to the right.
What actually happens is that law abiding North Americans (they are very obedient) wave frantically telling me to go.
But what about here?
Never seen one here.
Same. I don’t think I’ve had to think “give way to the right” for 30 years. All the roads have progressively been signed with give way or stop signs, to prevent stupid.
Stupid will win out in the end...
Lots of 4 way stop signs in Newcastle.
And the Gong, there's @Donzah when you need him?
Had to go through a roundabout the wrong way today
Ummm ..? I can't think of any 4 way stop signs .
I remember there was one. By Woonona high . Yonks ago?

You need to fix the issues with your heel first
Mine works fine, though I have noticed some heel jambing with your equipment.
Anywhere in particular you want to go ?
Anywhere with Pyrenees in the name is a simple plan.
Thanks for a great report DSNS
Yes intersection of Campbell St and Thompson Street..
The ski schools of most major US resorts are simply unaffordable due to high pricing and the exchange rate.
