I'm headed out to Utah with my wife the first week of April. It will be our first time in Utah skiing.
We're staying for a week, so she is looking for a place that has shops, stores, restaurants, bars, etc. So we're thinking the two best might be Park City or Solitude. Park City is fine with me, but it just seems excessively expensive to stay a week and ski.
My #1 priority was to spend at least a day at Snow Basin and ski the downhill and Super G from the 2002 Olympics. I read a story on this website about a father and son staying at a nice condo about 10 minutes from Snow Basin and Powder Mountain, but it seems like we need a shuttle into Ogden. My wife is looking more for the whole idea of we can leave our hotel or condo and just walk around the town at night and do whatever in the town.
Is it possible to stay at Solitude or Park City and make a trip over to Snow Basin for a day without renting a vehicle?
If it comes down to staying at Solitude or Park City, which of the two has the better skiing?
Thanks for any and all advice!
