Hahaha PC’s still in Utah at the end of the day. To answer both of y’all’s questions about PC. It is more “open” per say, but it’s not exactly the same as before. Make your reservations now for skiing PC. If you’re doing Deer Valley they aren’t doing reservations, but they are limiting their numbers WAY more than before. I’ve heard so much as half as many people as normal. So buy your passes now, do not wait. This goes for either resort. Much to the dismay of most. IMO I think the Vail reservations system works fine, it’s only been annoying and blacked out around the holidays and that’s because so many people made those reservations first thing this season, and with so little extra terrain open they couldn’t open more up. Moral of the story on the PC side is go ahead and lock your days in now so you don’t have to worry. If all else fails, I’ve found that doing day of reservations works after about 11am as well, and I’ve been able to get on mountain every single day I’ve wanted to so far. The snow here has been pretty weak so far. I was out all weekend mostly on the canyons side and it’s not rough, but it’s far from normal too, some thin cover, and lots of hard packed snow with occasionally Icy spots on steeper areas. A lot is yet to be opened which leads to a little bit of extra traffic sometimes even in places that aren’t as busy. On the flip side we had a little overachiever snow over the weekend, and the long term forecast is looking like the pattern is finally switching to get more storms to dip a little further south. Face coverings are required on mountain, the lodges are open, but if you sit inside you must make a reservation. The lift lines are broken down by how many in your party, and 2 “strangers” can ride together on a quad, 3 on a 6 seater. So far on mountain I felt very safe as far as covid precautions being made. Not so much for inexperienced folks riding where they really shouldn’t. We just really need more snow to space the people out a little more Town welcomes visitors with open arms. With no Sundance this year it basically opens up another two weeks of the year that otherwise just would not have been available to your average visitor. Typically it’s a great time to ski as the Sundance crowd isn’t typically skiing much but we need all the visitors we can, so sacrifices must be made. I’ll take a little extra mountain traffic in exchange for all the businesses staying in business. The real question comes down to budget, and where you’re staying? Bars: you’ll want to get a drink or 10 at No Name. If you make it to later in the night, The Spur is normally a great spot. High West off of town lift is probably a must visit too. Wasatch Brew Pub is a nice balance if you’re looking for a good beer but don’t want a full on bar. Depending on where you’re skiing and staying I’ve got a few off Main Street suggestions too. Face coverings are required outside on Main Street, and are required throughout Summit county. Most restaurants are running at about 50/75 capacity. I’ll hold off on restaurants until I head budget. Don’t wanna say go here when it’s way above whatcha wanna spend. Eventually I’ll post my full on visit list so that all my recommendations can be in one spot.
