There are tons of south Americans up here in winter and they all report the same as woodsbar.

A basin and Loveland are small, but I think there is more than enough terrain for you at either. Copper, Keystone, and Breck are also close by if you need to change it up for a day.

To be honest the chilean resorts especially valle nevado are actually pretty decent but the argetinian ones are really outdated, just came back from bariloche and the same as always huge crowds expensive lift passes and old lifts. I heard they had an accident with one their old lifts the week before i arrived and there were seriously injured people.
But in both countries if they get a tenth of the snow u guys get in colorado is already an EPIC winter.

killclimbz Snowklinger, I wasn't really concerned about getting to the area. More about getting back to their accommodations. For us metro types, well that is part of the package. For a vacationer, that is probably more of a headache than you want to deal with when there are similar options that avoid it altogether. I know I would choose the latter.

killclimbz The local Utards will need to chime in as to who usually has discount day passes and where they are sold. I know I had no problems finding tickets inder $60 for Powder Mountain and Snobasin by Ogden. Snobasin was one of the main Olympic venues, it is a pretty good area.

If you ar e going to be stubborn about going to Snowbird that one is going to cost you. No way around it. So get tour rape kit out.

I do also believe that Park City and the Canyons still offer a free lift ticket for the day you arrive in Salt Lake. Google it. If your flight gets in by mid morning, it is not hard at all to get a half day in. Takes maybe 45 minutes to get to Park City from the airport. Of course a car will really help in that endeavour.

I dunno, is that 2 weeks with 3 weekends or 1? Getting to Loveland from Gtown even with traffic is not a big deal, such a short distance you can just chill at the bar or whatever, if only 1 weekend I'd get the Loveland pass and go spend the weekend at Monarch.
