I did not consider Snowbird until I started checking statistics re. snowfall and after doing so was impressed. Greatly so.
I will not be driving which means I'll make use of transit in Utah - since there's a sweet deal on bus passes from SLC direct to Alta Resorts per month.
Prices appear to be reasonable and distance manageable re. lodging per month - guess I'll finalise a few things closer to the date!
I've heard that the night life in Utah in general isn't anything to be marveled at... then again, I'm going to board so that particular piece of information doesn't bother me @ all. I just want POW!!! POW! POW! POW! O' and a bit of park, pipe if it's not too much to ask for - Snowbird doesn't appear to have... one, but Brighton I think does...

Brighton has a nice park setup. Snowbird has literally a small kicker and 2 box rails. I don't know why they even wasted the time to set those features up because nobody uses them.
If you're there for the boarding, then the lack of nightlife won't be a big deal.
I think the SLC ski buses stop running on or about the 1st of April.
A lot of the people who list their properties on VRBO.com offer reduced rates for extended stays (2 weeks or more). There are lots of places for rent there you might find a good bargain if you make some phone calls.
Cheers & enjoy your trip!
