Here is my dilema, and I am hoping some of you can offer your advice/opinions.
My two brother and I are heading back to Utah in late January, early February. This will be the third time back there in three years. The last two times we have gone, we have concentrated on the LCC/BCC ski areas. This time we are considering skiing Deer valley, Canyons, Snowbasin and Park City. I realize that most of you will tell me to avoid these areas and stick with Alta/Snowbird, but the way we look at it is, we only get to head out West from Michigan once a year and want to ski as many resorts as possible. This being said, the question we have is where do we stay?
In the last two trips we have stayed at the super8 in midvale, this was perfect for our budget, and drive time between resorts. We always rent a 4 wheel drive, and we are basically there to ski, not party. That being said, we ski till they kick us out, we go to the hotel, eat dinner, drink 6 beers and go to bed, wake up and do it again.
Again, this year we want to hit the other side of the mountains and hit up Snowbasin as well. I believe that the hotels are much cheaper in Midvale, SLC than they will be in park city area. If this is true, how bad of a drive is it from Midvale to deer valley? I know Snowbasin is further North and we are not oppsed to driving, just wondering if there is a better central location for us to stay in the same price range.
I have searched this froum to death, and maybe I just dont know how to find it, but not many people are asking the same questions I am, therfore your help would be greatly appreciated.
