The February BET

The Davis Area CVB was delighted to host a fun group of people, representing ski clubs from California to Great Britain on our annual Buyer Education Trip held February 25 - 27. The powder was falling fast on Thursday at Powder Mountain. Their mountain hosts took the group all over the mountain, and our own Brandon led them down into Powder Country. They all raved about the size of the mountain, and the experience.

On Friday, the sun came out for our trip to Snowbasin - where Brandon again led some of the group through the slightly tracked out powder - and others skiied on the packed runs. This being the week of the Olympics in Vancouver - we finished the day by taking "the can"to the top of Mt. Allen for a look down the first face of the men's downhill. The views from up there are incredible.

Carolyn at Powder Mountain, and Steve at Snowbasin were wonderful hosts - providing the group with lunch on each day, and amazing experiences and memories.

Likewise, our hospitality partners in town were a hit: the food served at Roosters, Holy Smoke, and MacCools and Boston's Pizza was outstanding, the only complaint from the guests was that they ate too much. The newly remodeled Comfort Inn - Layton provided wonderful guest rooms and a great breakfast every morning.

We heard very positive comments from our guests, and look forward to the groups and clubs that come for a visit in the future. We're confident that skiing will be as good when they come next time, as it was on their BET visit. Because that's the way it is here: we do have the Greatest Snow on Earth, the best resorts in our backyard, and amazingly cooperative hospitality partners.
