Default Just booked a 10 day trip to Park City

Hey guys, went to park city last march for 3 days and was at the mercy of someone else, obviously this wasn't enough so i went ahead and booked my own personal trip for this upcoming February-march.

Staying at the base of park city in a 2BR condo that I booked off AIRBNB (awesome rental site). 110 per night, sleeps 7, full kitchen and walking distance to the lift.

I want to do 4 days at park city, 1 day (maybe 2) at canyons, 1 day at Brighton, and 1 day at Snowbird. This will give me 8 days on the hill with two days off.

Anyone have any other recommendations for mountains out there? Obviously can't do Alta, Deer Valley...

I have only been to Utah once and I went to Canyons and Solitude. Canyons was amazing, go there. Solitude was not bad either but one run at Solitude called Honeycomb Canyon was worth checking it out.

Every local that I talked to said Snowbird was their favorite.

Pretty jealous of this trip, enjoy mayne

I'll be out there around the same time. You're probably going to want to wait and see how this works out before you make any definitive plans...

Well reading through that is extremely unfortunate. Sounds like people's ego and greed are just getting the best of them. Funny that park city owns everything at the base...Including water rights, parking lots etc... They couldn't do a thing without park city.

Hopefully it'll work itself out. Luckily I'll be renting a car so we can do the other mountains if this article actually doesn't work out.

Yeah pretty ridiculous. I've been looking at places on VRBO and AIRBNB but decided to hold off on booking a place until I see how that all works out. If things go south and PCMR doesn't open I'll probably do a couple days at Brighton and Snowbird and then head up to Ogden and check out Snowbasin and Powmow, heard a lot of good things about those places.

I got a ridiculous rate for season on AirBNB, even if it is at park city the town will still be fun to stay in.

Yeah $110 a night is insane, especially if it sleeps 7 and you have a big crew to split that up. I've heard good things about the nightlife and the other resorts are all close so you're in a good spot either way. I'd like to stay up there for a couple nights to check it out, but at this point we're looking at just getting a cheap hotel that's somewhat centrally located and chasing pow. This will be my first time in Utah but after many trips to CO I've found we never stick to pre trip plans. Just wake up in the morning and go where the snow is falling.

I actually just booked it outright and my gf and I are gonna go board. It's a pain in the ass these days to get anyone to commit to a trip like that.
