I don't mind looking up the actual reviews and info if I can just get driving distances to them. Thanks, in advance, for any info.
What type of terrain are you looking to ride?

Big mountain steeps with lots of powder? - Snowbird

Tree runs with lots of chutes and cliffs into powder? - Brighton

Inbound type backcountry? - Solitude

Park sessions with big jumps or rails? - Park City / The Canyons

Utah has everything to offer, you have 7 resorts within 30-45 minutes of downtown and another 3 within an hour.
