Buffalo or Rochester. Everyone pretty much flies from here. My only problem is paying a shuttle everyday back and forth to the resort.

Dude...Utah has everything you're looking for and way more. If you don't like Park City you have 11 more resorts to choose from, all right next to each other. SLC has pretty good public transportation. Best snow/powder in the country and some of the best terrain. What else do you need?

I'm just hesitant because it's like tourist capital. Can you suggest some other ones too. I would look them up myself but I don't know any names

What is? SLC? Are you serious?

Name other cities/resorts?

Don't turn down Alaska off the bat.. Flights are only $400 round trip at the moment.

To legit to quit.

I'd suggest Solitude out here in Utah. Especially if you come mid-week, it seriously seems like nobody is there, and you can hit light pow/tree runs all day long. Snowbird is also alot of fun. As long as your here mid-week, resorts aren't that crowded.

Yah I know, it's just that I know I can't go from 500 foot vertical drop to Alaska. I wanna cheap and relaxing trip. Alaska is for later, when I get a little powder riding under my belt. Not SLC but Park City. I just want a more secluded place. I probably will go there eventually but I just don't think I like it right now. I have never been there so I can't judge, but from the pictures and trail maps I like schweitzer better because it seems bigger and less glades.

If you do PCMR, you won't have to pay a shuttle. If you do the cottonwoods (Brighton, Snowbird, Solitude), you can take the public transit which is pretty cheap. Just make sure wherever you stay is nearby to a bus stop, and you're golden.

Park City proper does get some crowds, and on a good pow day or a Saturday you're going to battle some chairlift lines in the morning no matter where you go that's just the way it is. Stay away from the main/base-area lifts at lunch time and you'll be OK.

Oh resorts besides park city.

Well you have Brighton, Solitude, Canyons, Snowbird, Powder Mountain and Snowbasin. Those will be your best bets.

Also.. I don't really see how a small not well known mountain is going to do you any good.. only the major ones are going to have a shuttle service. Maybe hit under the radar places once you're old enough to rent a vehicle.
