Another Utah question.

Hey Guys,
5 guys and I will be coming to SLC Feb22-the 27th. I think we have most of the places to board/ski nailed down, but one question I still have is our flight arrives at 9am, Where would you go for a 1/2 day, Powder Mountain or Snowbasin?
2 people are 45ish and are skiers who like groomers, the rest mid 20's boarders who like trees. Which one would be better for a 1/2 day?

We'll take a day break on Thursday. What kind of area attractions would you all recommend? Any local food places etc? I like a cold beer and a greasy burger.
We are staying at the Staybridge Suites Salt Lake-West Valley City and have a rental truck to use.
Thanks for all your help, Tons of great info on here and searching is frying my brain today.

if you're trying to ride the same day you land you should head over to Park City. you get a free lift ticket if you show your boarding pass.

Im going to be out there next week as well. I have never been there before so I cant comment on the different slopes or where to eat. But one thing my buddies and I were planning for the day off was to get out to the Bonneville Salt Flats. But then again, we are a bunch of car guys and each have a pretty nice quick car in the garage at home so this was fairly appealing to us.

Just a thought.

Salt Flats aren't that exciting. If you are going all the way there just drive the rest of the 20 minutes and go to Wendover for the casino. The salt flats has a gas station on the exit and the salt flats nothing else. Rather boring imo

I wouldnt expect anyone to understand. They are just something that I have really wanted to see for a long time. Being a Mustang enthusiast, I would sacrifice the time just to go out there and spend 15 minutes taking it in and going back.

Park City only offers the free lift ticket for your boarding pass at certain times of the year, definitely not the week he will be going.

Ya that free pass has some blackout dates the days we are there mainly.
I heard there was a cool Mormon temple, The Salt flats sound cool, I'm a Mopar guy who races 1/4 mile good idea,

Thanks for the help so far

Sorry to hear about the Mopar part.

I have had 7 mustangs over the last 10 years and all saw the 1320 regularly. But this is why the Flats were so appealing to me to go see. I understand there isnt much to them but to be able to simply be in a place where so much has gone on and so many records have been set is just amazing to me.
