I can't help you with this one, but anyone who can will probably appreciate some more detail; i.e. which resort (s) are you looking at or are you staying long enough to ride the entire state? >:)

Yep, more detail might help. Most everything is convenient from the airport and downtown. I have taken a 6:00 am flight from Boston and been riding at Snowbird by 12:30. I suspect most people will say that the best night life is in Park City so if that is a necessary component it is your best bet. The cheapest lodging is in SLC (chain hotels or AirBNB) and you can still be at Brighton/Solitude or Snowbird in about 30 minutes. The Cliff House at Snowbird gets good reviews but I haven't personally stayed there.

Sorry I'm not more helpful, but someone else will be along soon!

thanks dude. i think we plan on riding park city/the canyons the most.

it's going to be 4 guys so if we can get a 2br+ that would be ideal.

I was out there last year for the first time, rode Snowbasin, Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton. After fairly extensive research we decided to skip the PC resorts so I can't comment on those, but I can say you should really get to Brighton and Snowbird.

As far as accommodations and apres: We just grabbed a cheap hotel in SLC, obviously some places are closer than others but it was really easy to get around, nothing is an overly long drive. We went downtown on an off day and I wasn't too impressed. I'd recommend the Sugarhouse neighborhood, bit of a hipster vibe, but we found some cool laid back bars and restaurants there.

back with more detail.

arriving March 2nd around noon and leaving on the red eye March 6th.

we will be staying here (Red Pine condos):
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/9611070?s=23&user_id=8129972&ref_device_id=cf148047b3139c54

any idea if that's an OK location?

also, planning to ride as much "natural" stuff as possible (glades, etc.)

Thats unfortunate......I hope your doing that because you have EPIC passes.

The best riding in Utah by a huge long shot is in the Little\Big CottonWood Canyons and Ogden area
