I`m thinking of going to Alta/Snowbird from March 16-22 2012. I`m using air miles and i don`t think I'll get the flights i want a month or so before march. So I think I may book the flights now and then the hotel closer to march for a ski and stay deal. Do ski and stay deals normally come up for this time period or should I book the flight later when the deals come up. I`m also looking at Aleska, but I haven`t been to Alta/Snowbird yet so lets keep it there.
Utah Spring Break Trip 2012 Snowbird/Alta
Not the best to answer your question, ...but if you want to stay slopeside, certainly the deals will be better in April. Of course, there could be a slight degradation in snow conditions. If you stay in a suburban motel then I don't think the price differential is as large for the earlier timeframe.
Maybe this old thread has more info: http://www.epicski.com/forum/thread/81326/utah-in-april
I just found a deal from snowbird that applies from December 17 to April 8 for 999$ per person you get ski and stay at cliff lodge for 7 days/nights. Do you think I`ll get a better deal closer to march or should I book the flights now with this deal or wait.
Edit: It also includes airport transfer

Usually you don't get the best discounts nine months out, but maybe for the high season mid-March dates that deal isn't too bad?
Again, I'm not the best to comment, never stayed slopeside at Snowbird and before last January, hadn't been to UT in a long time. Good luck. You will love it out there.
Thanks for the help but we just booked an amazing deal at whistler for the week. One bedroom condo for 6 nights with skiing included for 1400 for 2 people. I haven`t been to whistler yet so it`s just after the school break in Canada so it won`t be that busy as we are skiing in the week. (The reason I didn`t think of going to whistler sooner was because of the break but hopefully we`ll be flying up and down the lift.)
