Just back from Skiing in Italy and Switzerland...
and after this thread -
I am going solo to SLC... i arrive 1130pm April 6th and fly out April 15th 11am so will get 8 days skiing - mostly solo skiing but hope to find folk to ski with and have a friend meeting me for a couple days... the Park city bit is so i can learn park, never really done that but skiing wise i can certainly ski very well...
this is what i have in my head -
6th - arrive - get car - sleep at Cheap hotel
7th - Get fitted for boots at Powder house, ski Alta - drive - sleep at Cheap hotel
8th - Ski Snowbird - drive - sleep at your Cheap hotel
9th - Ski Solitude - drive - sleep at Cheap hotel
10th - Ski Snowbasin or repeated resort - drive - sleep at Cheap hotel
11th - Ski a repeated resort - drive to return car at airport - shuttle to Park city sleep resort hotel
12th - Ski Park city - Sleep Park city hotel
13th - Ski Park city - Sleep Park city hotel
14th - Ski Park city - Sleep Park city hotel
15th - shuttle to airport morning and fly home
16th - Arrive home 120pm start work at 2pm and die!!!!
thinking Cheap hotel = The La Quinta in Midvale http://www.lq.com/lq/properties/propertyProfile.do?propId=803 seems good enough but open to other ideas... as really never been that far west in America so have no idea where i am going!!!
resort hotels i have been looking at are coming at 110 ish http://www.parkcityreservations.com/lodging/property-p345722 for a night so happy with that but i am very open to suggestions... lack of WiFi in the room is the only let down!!!
Hire car is where haivng problems whats the cheapest or best value - since by self car has to be cheap and if snowing will just bus it to ski centres... http://www.kayak.co.uk/cars is the cheapest i can find...
Hope to get some more great advise as i have gotten before...
