Choosing which resort to go to is an easy call - few lift lines, fewer people - we all know why we’re Solitude skiers. But, how do you make the most of your sick err...powder days? Here’s my strategy on typical storm days to maximize vertical, catch a few terrain openings and get more than my fair share of the goods!

In my experience, opening days are usually exciting but at the same time generally forgettable. As far as my all-time first days go, most have seen more icy groomers than pow turns. Well not this year. Not at Solitude.
I wasn't there for true opening day on Friday, December 2, which I was certainly bummed about since Utah just finished up a 40-inch-plus storm cycle earlier in the week. Then a little bird told me (via @skisolitude on Instagram... hint, hint) that PoHo (Powderhorn) and Eagle Express weren't opening until first thing on Saturday, December 3, and things were suddenly looking up.

Powderhorn. I call it “PoHo." For starters, it’s a pretty apropos abbreviation. It's also perfect, because when people text me to see where I’m skiing, “PoHo” is the longest response I want to type without gloves on. However, the real reason I like this nickname is because my friend Julianna said it and I immediately though it sounded like something Samuel L. Jackson would say in just about any movie. As in, “That po’ ho’ didn’t even see it comin’!” Whatever, you get the idea. What it boils down to is that I’m an unabashed fan of anything SLJ related as well as this chairlift I’m about to gush over.

Christmas presents are best when they are delivered on time. And when there are 24 of them dropped off overnight, I just might go ahead and call it ALL. TIME!
This storm dropped 24 inches (that's two feet for those of you counting at home), at Solitude in 24 hours. Dozens of fellow skiers claimed it to be the best day of skiing in the Wasatch in the last five or ten years, maybe longer, and they just might be right.
