Snowbird, brighton, solitude, but if you want to get away from the crowd, Pow Mountain and snowbasin. I like snowbird/brighton/solitude because you can stay in SLC and the drive is pretty quick to the airport. Plus, in SLC, the car rental situation is real quick and easy....moreso than many other airports.
Best time to go? Late Feb-into March. The base is good, the temps are usually reliable, and the snow often happens.
Thank you for the suggestions. I will look them up right now. Appreciate it
