Don't go to The Canyons.
Brighton is super fun if you know where to go. Probably the best resort in the Cottonwoods but you have to know where you are going or it might not be as fun.
If you want crowds go to Snowbird on a weekend.
Pow Mow is super fun and I highly recommend the drive.
What are the lifts like at Powder Mountain? I was reading a couple articles about the resort that kept mentioning having to take shuttles and stuff to get to certain lifts (the articles were a couple years old though). I would be fine with something like that, but I think my dad just wants to show up and ski since he's used to the super-infrastructure of Tremblant. Thanks for the tips though, I was worried about Snowbird being busy during the week as well because it's March Break. Any suggestions on what runs in Brighton are the best?
Thanks for all the help NoOtherOptions as well!
