Best patio for an après drink or burger is garfinkles which overlooks the gondola and chair 8. There is a place for breakfast burritos right by the skier bridge across from the gondola called El Sabor....

Vail village - pizza here would be Pazzos or vendettas. Burgers is Bully Ranch. Prime rib or steak stuff for $$$ is Lancelot or russells... Drinks après - red lion or any other bar with a crowd. Coffee is yetis grind in the solaris complex. There is a great theatre there too called cinebistro but if you wanna see a movie buy tickets a day ahead at least. There's a bowling alley too, both are nice high end places. Snowboard shop - Buzzs Board shop...

Any specifics just post up and I will try to reply

the type of terrain I like is what you described that is in Big Cottonwood, so I will definately have to make plans to ride there. Im not big on ammeneties as this holiday is still pure snowboarding holiday.

better start doing some planning on getting a hire car
While in either of the Cottonwood Canyon spots, be sure to stop at the Cotton Bottom for a Garlic Burger. Very low-key bar, but a must-see, for sure!

There are no local dealers here. I have 5 of their boards and my son does too. If you know what you want and want to order one and ship it to me i can hold it for you. I work at the hospital so evergreen isnt out of my way. I would guess there is a dealer in the SLC and park city region since they are made in Reno /sparks Nevada, a few hours away. You can always email smokin and take a tour and buy one direct too. The owner Jay is a really cool guy and will typically have no issue showing you how to make the board.

I personally hated everything about Park City. Except the park lol. I would definitely recommend little and big cottonwood canyon. Out of all the resorts in the canyon solitude was my favorite. It felt like i was alone on every run and there was 1ft plus of fresh both days i went. Terrain is a bit mellow but if you look hard enough you will find some nice chutes, drops, etc.

Snowbird was also awesome. The rest of my family was very intimidated by it but i loved it. Awesome steeps,chutes, drops, and anything you could ask for. Only downside was the snow got tracked out quickly.
