A Question about Sunday Crowds in Cottonwood Canyons

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Can anyone say which of the 4 resorts in Big or Little Cottonwood Canyons should be the least crowded on a non-holiday Sunday?  Specifically, Sunday Feb 12.  Our trip will have several midweek days at Alta, so we're trying to maximize skiing on Sunday.  Thinking of giving Brighton/Solitude a try if they get smaller Sunday crowds.  Thanks.

From what little I know, Solitude seems to be the quietest of the four pretty much all the time.

Solitude is the easy call.

Thanks.  Solitude sounds like the call.

FYI:  Saturdays are the more crowded day in Utah. Devout Mormons tend to spend Sunday at home.

What fraction of Altabird skiers do you suppose are devout Mormon? (I know probably impossible to answer but I am truly curious, please don't flame).

The percentage is probably next to nothing.  Like a lot of rumors about Utah the Saturday being more busy as compared to Sunday is probably a fallacy.  I ski every Saturday and Sunday, neither day seems any busier than the other.

Enought that it makes a noticeable difference on the slopes.

I agree.  I think more people sleep in on Sundays, or take longer to get going.  I believe the crowds, or lack of, are more dependent on weather and new snow than religion.
