Heading to SLC, staying downtown, looking to board for 4 days. Solid Intermediate.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Any advice on which resorts to visit?  I'm thinking PCMR, Snowbasin, Snowbird (may be too difficult? If so, maybe Solitude or Brighton?), and then pick my favorite on the last day.

 

Any advice?

 

Also, an equally important topic...  I am planning on renting a car.  Do all of the nearby resorts offer free parking near the slopes?

 

Thanks

Sounds like you have it figured out. Parking in UT at the resorts is generally free. You may be able to pay to park if you want valet...

As an intermediate boarder, I think you would enjoy PCMR, Snowbasin, and Brighton. Snowbird is a great place, but there is not that much terrain for intermediates in the way of groomed trails or moderate slopes. It consists mostly of steeps, bowls, and cat tracks connecting them. 

 

PCMR, Snowbasin, and Brighton all have a variety of fun, blue groomers with some more moderate off-piste terrain as well.

Two pieces of advice:

 

1. Don't ask for advice if you don't give us any information whatsoever about what you're looking for. I don't know what you like to snowboard or what level you are, so how can I recommend resorts?

 

2. Search the forum. This topic has been discussed about 15 times in the past two weeks alone. Unless you have more specific questions, you should be able to find plenty of good info.

As I mentioned, I am a solid intermediate.  I like to ski mostly groomers unless of course it's a powder day, in which case I want to be where the powder is as long as the terrain isn't too extreme.  I have enjoyed Steamboat in the past and also Squaw Valley (able to handle blues and the easier blacks at Squaw).   Any advice on how Squaw may compare to Snowbird?
