Thanks. I was hoping for something to scare me.mtnbiker62 said:What does "worth it" mean? That's always such a difficult question to answer...it depends on what you like, and want to ride. Will you have fun? Yes, you will have fun. Is it like Deer Valley? No (thank God, IMHO). The trails at Snowbasin are more XC oriented, and less DH oriented...think Super G Trees or Sunset at Deer Valley). Are there advanced sections at Snowbasin? No...regardless of what the map says. The advanced trails just have a few more rocks and ruts than the other trails. No drops, no terrain park, no 4X course, nothing like that. I ride the whole thing with my hardtail, and never wish for more bike. So, IMHO, the shredders have Wolf Mountain and some of Deer Valley, and the less Mountain Dewy among us have the rest of Deer Valley and Snowbasin.
