Heading to SLC for a meeting the week of Feb. 20th. On that Friday, planning on staying in the area for an additional 4 days of skiing in Alta/Snowbird and/or in Park City area depending on conditions. A buddy from Europe is joining me hoping to ski some champagne powder. Hmmm......we can always hope. We're probably going to rent a mid-sized SUV, just in case it really dumps.
Anyways, I have stayed in Park City and loved the town. But, he would like to save some money by staying in SLC. I know that driving to the Alta/Snowbird is just as easy if not easier from SLC; but if we have to drive to Park City for the apres ski, I am not sure if the savings are worth it. OTOH, perhaps there are good places to stay in SLC that would also have a good night life too for food and entertainment.
Any recommendations for SLC places to stay and hang out after skiing, or should we just bite the bullet and stay in Park City?
If the latter, any cheap but clean places there that would be good for 4 days?
