I have 3 days and am on my own. My plan is to do the SuperPass/SLC motel/Ski bus thing for as cheap a trip as possible. I am a strong eastern intermediate in my mid-fifties. I've skied powder, but not much. Never out West. My questions are:
Which of the Cottonwood areas to ski? From forum posts it seems wise to skip Snowbird in favor of Alta, Solitude and Brighton. Or should I stick to a single resort.
Rent in SLC or at the resorts? Any particular demo model a deep snow newbie should look for?
Does the ski bus really get you to the resorts in time to rent before the lifts open?
Is it practical to ski the day you fly out and still make an early evening, late afternoon flight?
