Wow....I'm going to say....Ogden and PowMow? For a Wedding Anniversary? Ogden is just a blech town. Only time I ever saw a fight on a ski trip was the one night I spent in Ogden. Unless your girl is freakishly mellow and laid-back (which, as I said, she's already awesome for being up for this trip), I'd think you might want to dial it up a bit for the Anniversary.
Here is my suggestion, if you're going to do Pow Mow....Stay in Eden. It is a quaint middle of nowhere area and driving out that way is pretty cool, especially once you get past Ogden. You can ride Pow Mow two days and roll down to Snowbasin two days. The drive between Eden and Snowbasin is pretty captivating. Ogden is still a 30 minute drive to Pow Mow, while Eden is right down the road.
That being said, the Canyons would provide more of the romantic feel. You'll be able to catch a cab down to Park City for an evening out, but the Canyons just isnt Pow Mow, Snowbasin...or Snowbird/Solitude, for that matter. You could still take a nice drive one day to either Snowbasin or one of the Cottonwood Canyons resorts......all about 45 mins away.
My two cents.
As for snow.....based on November and December, June looks to have greater snow potential than what has been falling, recently! March is my favorite month to play in the snow. If the precip is coming through, it'll be great. If the sun is out, the bluebird days are comfortable and aaaawesome! Celebrating St. Patty's on a ski trip is always a favorite.
