    Ok, this thread has definitively explained why the ski areas clear out by 1pm even on big days in the PNW

    8:30-10:30: skiing is definitely good enough to put up with the lift lines

    10:30-12:30: getting lonely rolling by yourself due to the ‘freeze’ but need a couple more laps to justify the 4:30am wake up needed to beat the traffic.

    12:30: hungry and the call of a substandard burrito is too strong, we’re outta here!!

    Masa followed by drinks at the Duck next door is the move.

    Edit: the taco truck at the Chevron on Gilman and Front is also decent.

    Pita's in Enumclaw on the way back from Crystal is a mighty fine post-ski burrito as well.

    The guys at the oil change place next door were raving about that truck when I was in there recently.

    Had the prix fixe at 84 Yesler the other night with the wine pairing and for the first time in awhile in Seattle, I felt like I had a true dining experience. Give that a whirl folks.

    And had the flight of beef at Butchers Table last night pre-show. Their beef fat fries and hen of the woods mushroom are solid.

    Hey OP, Seattle is what you make it. What a cop out I know, but from food to leisure, there is something for everyone if you can find it. You will wade through all the normal bullshit that comes with opportunity - traffic/house prices/politics. I've been in Seattle most of my life, but lived in SF and Santa Cruz for a bit and have now moved to the Santa Cruz of Seattle - Vashon. It's better here.

    This thread makes me laugh. If you want to be close to the mountains in a tier 2 city there aren't a lot of choices. I'd rather ski here than the front range. SLC doesn't compete with seattle from an industry standpoint. yes it's too expensive and the ski areas are now overrun thanks to ikon/epic, fat skis, economic and population growth. burritos are better in CA and its not even close. BTW a good burrito does not have rice and beans in it. When we moved to seattle in 2002 it was very provincial. Not soo much anymore , a lot of young people have moved here. Would I rather ski the tetons and the cottonwood canyons ? Yes but that's not happening.

    Really solid point. Other cities might be better at one or two aspects, but its hard to rival how good the Seattle area is at so many things at once.

    Best mole sauce in Seattle-area?
    Caadxi Oaxaca in Snoqualmie.

    But y'all are being picky if you can't enjoy a wet burrito from Guaymas at greenlake.

    And if so, does that make Seattle the Pinnacle of City Design and Performance?
    Despite the apparent lack of Hispanic cuisine?
