With the recent Dump....I am now planning on snowbasin on Tuesday and kick Canyons down the road for later in the week. I thought I already purchased my Canyons ticket, but actually only Monday at PCMR.
Yo, I'll be there Feb 6-10 and staying in Sandy, UT; planning on hitting up Snowbird and Solitude for sure, with a Saturday trip up to Snowbasin or PowMow to avoid the crowds. Maybe your wife would enjoy PowMow... I've never been, but have heard there's less steeps with more of a cruiser feel to the runs. Depends alot on snow snow too of course.
Sounds good - though I'd hit Snowbasin then the bird then PC
Get the fresh pow while it's still there - park city gets nothing from our storms - Put it this way, snowbasin received 3 feet in 3 days, snowbird has 25" in the last 48hrs and Park City Mountain Resort....3 inches in 48 hours...
Of course Solitude and Brighton you can find fresh snow weeks after a storm if you know where to look. But you plan sounds good.
Okay.....done PC (X2), Snowbasin, Snowbird and Brighton (today). Brighton was the only fresh snow all week. I am watching the overnight snow and either hitting up Brighton or Snowbasin for our last day. Anyone know which gets more crowded on Saturdays?
I haven't had a lift line all week! ......got spoiled.
i wish i joined this forum last year when i went to utah for the first time. sounds like you got some great advice. the only thing i can say that if you like riding in the park stay away from snowbird, i can't believe they don't have a park. Canyons have a pretty good one but it's only one trail
Well, our week is up. We will be back next year. Things I learned:
1) Stay in PC, but don't ski here unless a big storm comes through.
2) Snowbasin, Snowbird and Brighton are amazing and all different in their own right.
3) Brighton would be my goto if I was local. $58 for a ticket is a steal!
4) RENT A SUV and enjoy!
5) VRBO has some great deals on condos for cheaper than hotels.
6) Bring Ptex and diamond stones if you do much back county stuff. :-)
