david_z Hey toopach -

I'll be there February 15 thru 22. Five of us flying in, and a sixth showing up mid-week. We're renting a house downtown.

I am definitely down if people want to meet up to ride, or to party at night.

toopach 3rd week of February at the super 8 too, 15th to 21st if anyone wants to meet up and ride.

KerSki I'm with some of the others.. Stay in Sandy or Midvale - even some spots downtown. Some of the property managers are hurting and you might get a crazy deal right now. To get the most days of skiing in if you are renting gear, rent from a place that has enough locations that you can leave it at the resort in Park City before heading to the airport.. or one that has a shop downtown and on the way to all of Utah's resorts. Ski 'N see has about 10 shops and discount lift tix.

mithong haha i'm going to be staying at the super 8 in midvale during the 3rd week of feb too! (wed- sunday) I did a lot of research on places to stay around SLC, and super 8 definitely seems like the best, and more importantly, cheapest option available

Magnum626 Thanks for the responses everyone. Looks like I'll be staying at the super8 and renting a 4x4. The jacuzzi looks pretty small in the pics but for the price you can't go wrong.

I'm going with a friend of mine and she can handle the blues pretty well out here on the east coast, but they're not Vermont blues more like catskill blues. She's been to Whistler/Blackcomb and wanted to kill me when we took 3 lifts to get to the top. She was like "You mean we're not at the top yet?!?!" She handled it pretty well though, not bad for her 10th day after learning to ride. Any suggestions on which mountain we should hit up that she can warm up to before we hit the 'bigger' resorts?

I've been to Snowbird in 99 and PC and the Canyons in 04. Canyons being my favorite just for the natural terrain. I'm more of a freeride person who never really goes into the park. Just some natural jumps here and there.

I can't wait to get out there.

BTW thanks burritosandsnow for the offer on the ride!! Kudos bro.

david_z I got a 2BR house (sleeps 6) a block from Main Street on vrbo.com for about $200/night, Feb 15-21. Couldn't beat that location/price anywhere.

GC24 I will most likely be staying at the base of the canyons from the 10th to the 15th. It seems that 225 is pretty standard for a nightly rental of a two bedroom plus loft condo. Check out vrbo.com

burritosandsnow Super 8 Salt Lake City Hotel this super 8 is minutes from solitude brighton and snowbird ... two skishops on the way to the resorts plus a million ( almost ) food choices within 3 blocks

Which Hotel 8 is it exactly? Is there an address available?

My concern is not being able to hit the other resorts if it dumps. I guess I'm starting to get picky now...lol

I'll take a motel/hotel jacuzzi/pool and rent an econobox I suppose.
If it dumps and chains are required, take the ski bus. Theres stops in Midvale, or you can drive up to the parking lot in the beginning of each canyon and catch it from there.
