Can't wait to get on the mountain.  This trip we are going to do a lot of snowcat skiing.  Besides Alta, we will be checking out the skiing on Powder Mountain, they have cat skiing for only $7 per ride!  What can you buy for $7 these days?

-1.5 Starbucks latte
-1.5 Bean and Cheese Burritos
-2 packs of lettuce for Shelldon the tortoise
-1 pack of chapstick from costco
-1.5 Fashion Magazines off the stands
-10 to 15 minutes of wireless internet time in an airport that doesn't provide free interenet (boooo!  Booooo! Free wireless is the way to go!)

Yep, that's pretty much all I can think of for now.

Powder Mountain is approximately 45 minutes away from the Cottonwood Heights.  We have gotten so spoiled having Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, and Solitude only 8 miles away (approx 20 min drive).  45 mins seems kind of far for skiing :)~
