As a Salt Lake City resident and avid snowboarder, Phil Eitman knows how to make the most of his winter. With close proximity to a number of resorts he is enabled to get some turns in either before or after his work day. It is a lifestyle that many snow enthusiasts yearn for: to be able to work in one’s own professional capacity yet still maintain the amount of time in snow to qualify as a daily snowboarder. With three of his favorite resorts right nearby, it’s not a tough lifestyle for Phil Eitman.
Located right outside of Salt Lake City, Brighton is a gigantic mountain that boasts lots of great snow and expert level terrain. Brighton is his closest resort, so he often buys the season pass for this mountain, despite the fact that he has to buy it separately from the Epic Pass; although he claims it is well worth it.
Recently acquired by Vail Resorts, Phil Eitman is very excited that he will have full access to Park City throughout the year. It serves as further justification for getting the Epic Pass, which once upon a time he only got so he could be a regular at his favorite resort.
Canyons is his most favorite resort by far. With the most skiable terrain of any Utah resort, Canyons boasts a wide variety of runs and unique obstacles such as natural half-pipes that bring together the backcountry people with the park riders for a unique experience.
