From Australia visit West Coast USA

G'day,

I want to visit West Coast USA (PC, Tahoe, Mammoth) and stay somewhere affordable, yet be within decent earshot of the mountains, hopefully with good public transport.

Can anyone make any suggestions for places to stay in California thats on a budget that would be good for a few weeks of life as a bogan in your awesome snow-filled country?

Cheers,
Jase

hey Jase Ill answer for Utah since you mentioned PC in your post... to stay in PC is a bit expensive even at the chain hotels but they do have free public transportation. If you decide to stay in PC with no vehicle youll only have PCMR and The Canyons to ride, although both are amazing mtns and should keep you very entertained. If you decide to go into SLC theres many places to stay at the base of the Cottonwood canyons home of Brighton Solitude and Snowbird. Theres a canyon bus service that has in town pick up and its only a few bucks each way. If you need more specifics as you start to plan Ill be glad to help.. good luck

Wow, thanks for your info dude. I should have mentioned I do want to experience some of the life of West Coast (edit: in particular California) also, so staying on mountain isn't a necessity.

Can you give me a ballpark figure on what I would be looking at per night (USD is fine ) and what mountains are close to Salt Lake? It's just too damn cheap to fly to Vegas these days!

In Salt Lake you got Birghton, PC, Canyons, Snowbird, Solitude. A little farther north in Ogden are a few other places.
