In Sunday's print edition of this story you labeled one of the snowboarding pictures taking place at Alta. If you would have done any research on these resorts you would know Alta has never allowed snowboards onto its slopes. At least if your going to grab a random picture and throw it in the paper, do some research.

As someone who grew up skiing in Idaho and Utah, I can confirm what was shared in this article. In my opinion, the real gems of the Wasatch front are Alta, Brighton, and Snowbird. Brighton is a great resort with good prices and though it is very snowboard friendly, is perfect for skiers as well. Alta is the skiers paradise. Snowbird is...Snowbird! The Park City resorts: Deer Valley, the Canyons, and Park City are all enormous and luxurious. But they always felt a little too snobby (*cough* expensive) for my taste. Sundance is a joke. You don't travel to Utah to ski at Sundance. Enjoy the snow!
