I think it has more to do with the pretentiousness of skiers

Ain't a whole lot of pretense in that canyon, as far as skiing goes, which can be pretty pretentious. Snowboarders in general, are a bunch of snotty arse punk-arses, with a great sense of entitlement, but little contribution to anything other than their self absorbed selves.

I think SLC closes after 5 PM...Mormon's (or Mountain Pimps, as we call them) don't drink, don't do drugs, don't drink coke, don't cuss, ride bikes, and love BYU...leave SLC immediately

Used to be a good little shop right before you head up the canyon, but the gear is good enough, and they're competitive enough to get it on the mountain. Go to Solitude. You'll love it.

Non-Mormons have taken over SLC.

Not sure about the nightlife. Been there once with a bunch of BYU students, and that was 12 years ago.

SLC has improved a bit over the years, but it's still run/occupied by morMONS. Usually have to import your own fun, which is OK, if you ski/board hard all day, you just want to have a few drinks, big meal, and crash. Used to be a hokey arse steak house there called Annie Oakley's that was pretty good. You could get a piece of prime rib as big as your thigh, with all the trimmings for under $30.

If it is your first time snowboarding you should take at least a half day private lesson.

Skiing is easier to pick up for novices.
