Stuff We Like – The Snow Junkies http://www.thesnowjunkies.com Lodging, Gear, and Lift Ticket Deals for Skiers and Snowboarders Thu, 07 Mar 2013 01:32:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 Snowbird Now Has Snowcat Tours! http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2013/03/03/snowbird-now-has-snowcat-tours/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2013/03/03/snowbird-now-has-snowcat-tours/#respond Sun, 03 Mar 2013 22:54:11 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=6223

This is rad. Snowbird opened up a bunch of terrain for snowcat tours.

Snowbird Snowcat Skiing for Nature is a guided backcountry ski experience in the previously unaccessed Mary Ellen, lower Mineral Basin and Miller Hill areas south and east of Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. Half-day tours are available for groups as large as 10 people or may be purchased on an individual basis.

It’s $300 bucks for a half day which includes a lift ticket and lunch. Not recommended for boarders because of some short hikes. See more at the Snowbird site.

Finally, A Use for That Rancid Couch on Your Porch http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2013/01/29/finally-a-use-for-that-rancid-couch-on-your-porch/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2013/01/29/finally-a-use-for-that-rancid-couch-on-your-porch/#respond Tue, 29 Jan 2013 23:48:59 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=6203

According to this news report, skouching is slapping some skis on a couch and riding it down a hill. I far prefer the definition in the Urban Dictionary — you had at me at “simultaneous handjobs.”

Best Ski Town in America: Round #1 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/11/09/best-ski-town-in-america-round-1/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/11/09/best-ski-town-in-america-round-1/#respond Fri, 09 Nov 2012 22:43:48 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5953 It’s impossible to pick the best the best ski town in America, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a hell of good time arguing about it. Powder Magazine has opened up voting in their Ski Town Throwdown. It’s a bracket style system pitting the best of the ski towns against each in a winner take all title.

Happy to see that my hometown mountains Mad River & Sugarbush easily took down yawnsville Ogden. Although to be fair Ogden is number one in our hearts when it comes to ski town cabarets.

Steamboat Springs, where I lived for years had a tough fight against Bellingham while Bozeman (yeah, I move around a lot) easily coasted past Marquette. The only former home of mine that didn’t make the second recond was Summit County which is understandable as they were up against Telluride.

Some epic battles are coming up next. Click through to here to vote on the Ski Town Throwdown.
