There is nothing better than when out-of-town friends finally come to visit you in Utah. You’ve been talking up the mountains, the snow, and yes, the beer, for years. We were lucky enough to have the Steves in town: Steve Bergan and Stephen Mitchell of Seattle. When you finally have guests, you want to ensure that you are showing them the best that Utah has to offer. You can give them the option of getting up to Solitude Mountain Resort for some first tracks, or sleeping in and still getting a full day of skiing, since Solitude is so close. We and the Steves slept in.

First days are full of, well, firsts. First time putting boots back on (ouch!), clicking into skis or snowboards again (whoa - slippery!), riding lifts, and of course sliding down the hill. It’s sort of like riding a bike, but there’s still an awkwardness to that first day back on the mountain. Hopefully these tips will help.
First off, the word of the day is “tranquilo.” As in TAKE IT EASY! Everything will take a little longer than you expect, so make sure your expectations match. The night before, it helps to organize your gear so you don’t forget something like gloves, goggles or your wallet. I hit the opening day “oops, I forgot…” double score and had to circle back home twice to grab forgotten items. Planning ahead will help you avoid making the same first-day mistake and having to “boomerang” home for crucial gear.

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!
