|killclimbz||Ha! Good point. I was talking about the person who might be staying at Snowbird. It's a pretty short walk to Alta from the base area. I doubt I would bother getting in a car.|

If you like Mexican food make sure you hit up Lone Star Taquira(near the resorts) and classic snowboarder owned and ran Spedelli's Pizza.

I'd say get atleast one pass for Little cottonwood and one pass for big cottonwood ahead of time so if there's avalanches in little cottonwood you can skip the 3 mile long line of waiting cars that day and head to big cottonwood instead as your backup plan. Big cottonwood is hardly ever closed for avalanche control work but if there was snow overnight there's a good chance Snowbird and Alta will NOT be accessible until maybe even lunch time when DOT finally get the roads cleared.
There's plenty of beginner\intermediate terrain at Snowbird but it helps to know your way around, tram laps on uncrowded pow days are epic.

Maybe it was powder mountain that has the cat rides, not the canyons. I can't remember now.
I'm going with a group of guys who suggested just getting passes daily, at some little store at the bottom of the canyon?
I'm kind of nervous about snowbird. Big drops aren't my thing quite yet. I'm really hoping there's powder there.

They have a Salt Lake Pass thats good for Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton...park city is great but they don't get as much snow as the SLC resorts BUT the party scene is awesome if you have the cash adn teh riding is great if teh snow is plentiful.
Send me a message before arriving in town will be happy to show you around Brighton I should have a solitude pass as well this year.
Snowbird is EPIC on a weekday with fresh powder, had a 3 foot day there last season that blew my mind(oh the powdery chutes and drops) but on weekends with no fresh snow I'll take Brighton, Solitude or even better Powder Mountain all year on weekends.
Take a serious look at Solitude, it may not be as big but the sidecountry access(if open) is amazing and the crowds are no where to be found.

I'm also going to Utah in early March, and I asked the same question about passes being good at multiple resorts. The answer I got was no.
Snobird and Brighton are top on the list with the group I'm going with. From what I've read if the powder is good, The Canyons with the cat ride options looks like a blast and a nice break from the demanding slopes of brighton/snobird.

|Towkin||Spend 90% of your time at Brighton and Snowbird. Just go to park city/canyons to say you've been there.|
