I just realized I'll be in SLC for the exact four days of the Mountain Dew Tour. I'd like to get out to Snowbasin, but if the crowds are going to be huge, I'll stick to the Cottonwoods.
Last year, we hit Snowbasin on a Saturday "to avoid crowds" and found it to be the busiest resort of the 4 we tried (Snowbasin Saturday, Solitude Sunday, Snowbird Monday, Brighton Tuesday). Maybe it was the day of the week, or maybe "the word" is getting out there.
Any thoughts? Should we go on the Thursday?
