However, Winter Park is having an early season special where I can get a hotel for $90/night with $45 lift tickets. Instead of renting a car they have a shuttle from the airport so that's a wash. Flights are about the same to Denver as SLC. Deadline for this deal is Nov 16.
I have to look at this two ways. Pure skiing, pretty sure Utah wins. However, it's enticing to not have to rent a car and get up and drive to the mountain each morning. I think that may help get my wife to buy into the trip a bit more.
