Solitude Mountain Resort

Pros: Powder. Powder. Powder. Solitude receives Utah's light, dry, fluffy, powder in the range of both Alta and Snowbird. Inexpensive. Uncrowded.

Cons: It's finest terrain lies in an adjacent canyon called Honeycomb. Most of the EPIC terrain, however, is really hard to access without lots of hiking.

Alta

Alta

“ My husband and I were intermediate Eastern skiers when we first visited Alta.  Not surprisingly, we never went back.  To ski in the East, that is.    Alta is not for everybody.  It's not a name-dropper resort like Aspen or Vail.  It does not have a big resort feel, nor the nightlife some would like after a couple of hours ripping the cruisers.  In fact,...” --Altanaut

Snowbasin

Snowbasin

“ The prices went up on the food from when I was last there two years ago.   But two years ago I couldn't appreciate the challenge that Snowbasin brings.   I agree with almost everything said above, this place is awesome.    If you are looking for a destination to ski... go to the Park City area.  If you have a car and are willing to drive to a destination...” --HolaSnow

Snowbird

Snowbird

“ SNOWBIRD: NOT FOR BEGINNERS, ADVANCING BEGINNERS OR LOW INTERMEDIATES!!!!!! Disclaimer: I do not dispute that Snowbird is one of the best resorts for advancing intermediates to experts.  I believe the better skier you are the more you would probably get from this beautiful beast of a mountain.  This review is targeted directly toward beginners to low intermediate skiers or those thinking...” --esumsea

Powder Mountain

“Stay away from this place! Horrible twisty mtn rd with NO SHUTTLE to get you up or back down!! Snowbasin is much easier to get to with great modern facilities. Just do yourself,(err me) a favor and stick to Snowbasin or the SLC areas!!   Snowbasin has the absolute best snow, and due to their location they get HUGE dumps and the snow is NEVER crusty or windblown; always deep deep deep and light....” --dontskienough

Park City Mountain Resort

Park City Mountain Resort

“ The Park City area is our favorite base camp for family skiing in North America, hands down. Sub-4.5 hour flights into SLC from either coast. 45 minute drive up from the airport. Downtown lodging is where it's at. Good eats & the midtown lift is right there.  We hit Bangkok Thai on Main every trip, which is without a doubt the the best bang-for-your buck grub in downtown Park City....” --Veloscente

Solitude Mountain Resort

Solitude Mountain Resort

“ Solitude is an excellent mid-size resort with a great variety of terrain you would not expect from a resort of its size.  Plenty of fun for advanced and expert skiers off the summit.  Honeycomb canyon has a great backcountry feel to it with a variety of lines to choose from.  We were there on a Sunday during spring break to get away from the Park City crowds and it was great;...” --ExWanabe

Canyons Resort

Canyons Resort

“ The Canyons quickly changed for the better since it was purchased by Talikster.  Iron Mountain has opened, additional restaurants have opened, the base of the gondola has moved in front of the Cabriolet lift, and a new Orange Bubble chair was installed to alleviate traffic at the bottom of the mountain.  A mile long terrain park was added, too.  Wow.  The lodging...” --quant2325

Deer Valley Resort

Deer Valley Resort

“Yes, the lift ticket here is pricey, but they offer amenities not found at other resorts. If you are an intermediate skier that sticks to groomed runs this is the place. Even after big dumps the runs were groomed. The place offers 1/2 day mountain host tours free that will take you around the mountain and point out sights. The morning run had multiple hosts so if levels are too different they...” --Hoben02

Brighton

Brighton

“ The last two years my group has gone to Utah, we've split time among the area resorts, taking a single day at Brighton. While a little on the small side, it's definitely among the favourites.  We like that the more advanced skiers and boarders can duck into the trees at almost any point in the resort... letting the lesser ones on the groomed trails.  Don't plan a vacation here, but...” --JoeSchmoe

Sundance Resort

Sundance Resort

“Go to Sundance if you are looking for rustic but upscale accommodations.  You can stay in rooms and condos within the resort, close to skiing, restaurants and arts and crafts or you can stay in the many large houses up in the hills.  Bring your kids along for this vcacation. During the day, you can go for ski runs then when your children (or you) want to do something else or are cold, you can...” --
