Can someone explain Utah resorts to me?
We are intermediate riders who like powdery bowls, tree runs and cruising. Not into park. Will do the occasional black run but prefer cruising on the blue runs or no run at all.
We are coming to the US Feb/Mar 2014 and trying to find the best places for us to snowboard.
Firstly we've been told to stay away from any ski resort on Presidents Week so we will start the weekend after, for 2 weeks.
Our neighbour has relatives in SLC so he is raving about Utah snow (although he doesn't ski or board).
We are used to going to a resort and staying ski-in ski-out for 5-7 days at the one place. Then you can ride all day and just crash at night after a good feed. This doesn't seem to be the go from what I've read about Utah?
So do people hire a car and drive to different resorts each day from SLC? It sounds like most resorts are too small to stay at and have a reasonable choice of accommodation and dinner...
So far we like the sound of Brighton, Solitude, Snowbasin and Canyons...
Other choice is week in Utah, week in California (Mammoth or Heavenly?).
Advice would be lovely...thanks
