Default where to stay in utah?

Hey my family was looking to maybe going out to SLC in january if we can afford it, we found $250 roundtrip tickets from detroit, so thats not bad. We don't really care what resort we stay at out there because they all are a huge upgrade from what we have here. The big question is where to lodge at. It's four people and we would like a view, maybe like a ski in ski out or something because my dad can no longer ski so he is probably going to just chill in the room most the day and he would like to atleast have something nice to look at outside. He may try to monoski/handicap ski or whatever its called but we aren't sure yet, and in case he doesn't thats why he atleast wants a nice view. so what would be the cheapest/ best value place to stay near SLC?

Ski in-out is not cheap no matter where it is....keep that in mind. SLC has a ton of options and most resorts are within an hours drive from pretty much anywhere... your options are plentiful my friend. Check out this website....

yea i know ski in ski out isn't cheap, but I guess its more of a view of the mountains we want if that makes sense, and when I searched before I posted, I saw powder mountain and ogden thrown around a couple times, so I will look into those too.

I will plug Powder every time! It's a great place but do a search and decide for yourself...I am biased.

Im with Tenielle on powder mtn. Out of my whole Utah trip that area stuck well with me.
Solitude has over the last few years built up a small " euro" style village at the base so they have a bit of ski in ski out . Brighton has nothing .. at least not what hes looking for.. they have one small lodge with teeny rooms and a common room with a fire place tv etc... Brighton has had the approval for about 5 years to build a 200 room baselodge but hasnt really moved forward with those plans ... they just keep it really low key and simple there ...


to the original poster ... if you want to go all out id suggest a home rental in park city if you wanna save a few bucks id say powder mtn ... p.c. is going to give you the full mtn town tourist experience where powder mtn will give you the hometown were gettin away as a family type feel

Powder has ski in-out they are timeshare though....I think they may have a few you can rent w/out buying in though......sometimes it's hard to get one. If you go to pow-mow I would suggest staying on weekdays...easier to get in and you will have the mtn. to yourself. If you do end up going and can hang.... I try to shuttle backside at least once a week after work. My time on the mtn. is limited these days so if you can't keep up ...I will wait on you for 1 run...then I will take you to the night skiing lift and ditch you.....just a warning. Oh and you must be at least 18yrs of age....I will ID you.....

If you plan to hit up a variety of Mountains in Utah...The canyons, solitude, powder mountain, etc.....Is staying in Salt Lake City too far of a drive to get to those mountains? And if so, what is the next closest (cheapest) town to stay in? Im actually looking to take advantage of Southwest's 72 hour sale for the roundtrip airfare....

Oh girl.....we have to hook up!!!!! No, SLC will be your most central spot....to get to Powder(which is prob the furthest from SLC) it would take you tops hour and a half.....they have a way better night life in SLC and I would totally meet up with you for drinks too! Hell I might even call in dead to work so I can join you!

Last year I found a new Hotel in Ogden UT called the "Value Place." I was able to walk-in for $199 for the week. It was about 25 min away from the mountain but worked out perfect. I dont know if they are still at that rate but its worth checking out if you are headed out that way.

I stayed in SLC last year and hit Brighton, Snowbird and PowMow. There are a few places up north and lodging in Odgen is dirt cheap, with SLC already being cheap compared to CA prices.

Also, the SnowBus runs from a few places in and round SLC and drops you off at any of the big 4 resorts. Worth it, IMO.
