Pray for snow!
Depending on how many days you're there -
I'd start with Snowbird, then Powder Mountain, then Solitude/Brighton then The Canyons/Park City.
This is all based on powder days though, I'd hit different resorts depending on current conditions.
But like Snowvols said - Brighton is my favorite resort, it's taken me a few season to actually know everything about the mountain, it's actually pretty small compared to other Utah resorts. Brighton is all about knowing where to go, you can find powder - days even weeks after a storm. Brighton is great if you love cliffs, trees, chutes and AMAZING side or backcountry access. The area between "brighton"/milly that is closed off as "CLIFF AREA" - all of that back in that area is just a dream land.
I recommend Park City resorts not for their terrain, but if you come from a non ski area, it's cool to hit PC and have all the nice and cool stuff you see in ski movies. it's very touristy, the mountains can be fun. I wouldn't personally pay what they charge though. But if you're coming a long way to Utah to ride, one day in PC is always fun.
