I'm thinking of heading out to Alta/Snowbird area for 3 days of skiing in late January solo. Since I'm not with my girlfriend I won't need luxury digs for the evening and after doing research everything is pretty expensive in the Alta/Snowbird area.
In searching for affordable lodging what city should I search in? Sandy/Granite, Utah or someplace else?
Also - I'm assuming the best way from airport to my lodging and to Alta/Snowbird is renting a car as a shuttle is about $72 each way to the airport.
Thougts and advise is is appreciated!
