tonicusa Not sure how "real" those discounts are. They say tickets are $104 at the resort but I didn't pay that. The ticket window at PC says "lowest price guaranteed" and I just paid $85.

Park city for park on no snow day and party in town. Canyon is also an option better in my option.

Snowbird on powderday and hang out at the condo.

Utah is way cheaper then colorado in lodging , but the alchol level is 3.x % , but it shouldn't matter you guys are under age.

Colorado- breck way expensive compared to snowbird for lift tixs 100 and up vs. 60 if you buy at the sport store down the street.

Keystone is ok they have tix at the local grocery store for cheap.

Like I said though PC for park(s) including pipe!, and night life options and The Canyons just down the road for free ride options, particularly if it dumps. It covers everything! Its hands down better location for a group to have a good time than stuck in a shack at Shitbird. No park, no pipe, no nightlife and if it hasn't snowed the day before, icy, traversy, bland open slopes....hmmm tough call.
Okay the person going on this trip is obviously under 21 so he doesn't need a good night life. Also Snowbird is almost never icy and the traverses are easy as fuck. Park and pipe are for the weak.

And for the record, I'm not a bird fan. It's my least favorite resort-the skier jock relocation from east coast guy attitude is annoying, stupid, irritating and yet quasi funny. (But it was being compared to Keystone-which it destroys).

Brighton, Soli, PM, 'basin, and if hits just right The Canyons.

vajohn Snowbird is ok. But there is definitely more of a lame, douchebag skier vibe going on there and it is frequented by a bunch of turds who like the fact that Alta discriminates against us. If you do go there, you can and should also head over Solitude and Brighton where there is a much chiller vibe (you can take the bus if you're not going to have a car). The times I have been out there out the conditions were also way better at Sol/Brighton, but it could be the opposite when you go--they are right next to each, but one area might get close to a foot of fresh real quick while the other only gets 3 or 4". Makes for a good week long trip, plus you could go to the other resorts like Canyons or Pow mountain if you get a vehicle.

Keystone is a cheaper place to stay and still do Breck (also bus service between resorts), but there are cheaper places to stay around there. If you get a vehicle, you can stay somewhere in Summit county and do Breck, Keystone, Vail, and A Basin on the same pass if you want--but I could ride Breck for a week and not get bored, plus night boarding right over at Keystone. Copper is another option right next Breck.

You might also look into Jackson Hole. Pretty reasonable if you stay in town, but lift tickets are as expensive as Colorado (not really any discounts to be had like in Utah).

Coming from NZ, I expected a bit of Brighton, Baker or Soli love... but PC??!!?? You must be an instructor.

I live 15 minutes from PC, for the record. If you love snowless mountains and overpriced lift tickets, then this the place for you!!!
