Heading to Utah!

Hey folks...super excited because I am headed out to Utah with a friend to do some boarding in late March. I used credit card rewards for my flight and we are trying to do this on the cheap as much as possible. I am looking for any tips or suggestions on where to ride, where to get the beast deal on lift tickets/lodging, etc. I have been to Alta and Park City a few years ago for one day each skiing...this is before I took up boarding. I did not like Alta as good as Park City...not sure why but it seemed like the vibe was younger and less crusty maybe at PC? Anyway what I would love is somewhere with nice big groomed greens and blues for cruising/carving. I am a beginner snowboarder, only been riding 3 years and live on the east coast so have only really got to ride 3-4 times a year in icy conditions. Any knowledge you guys that know the resorts out there can provide would be great. We are only going to be out there for 3-4 days of boarding. I am also busy using the search feature on these forums as well.
Thanks in advance!

Tim

If you want cheap don't go to Park shitty. Its expensive as hell and not worth it at all. I would try snow basin, Powder Mountain, Snowbird is not really large groomed runs.

i hear snow basin gives away free beer on pow days....
definately dont go to powder mountain.

On a more serious note, brighton if you want to be near slc.
Bird, canyons and PCMR are all expensive.

Also for what you want Brighton and Snowbasin are the best bets

The guy wants long runs to carve on. That is Pow Mow.

Where are you staying..SLC , Park City ? I would say for long groomed runs the Canyons don't bother with PCMR unless you want to go there just to say tht you have. Brighton doesn't really have long groomed runs but some of the tree riding is sweet. I haven't been to SnowBasin but we drive right past it heading to PowMow it does look sweet driving by. PowMow has some pretty long runs and there lift tickets are not to much and they have Powder Country.Good Luck and have fun I do every time I am there.
