Lift pass for the area around Salt Lake City

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am planning a trip to ski the area around Salt Lake City in 2013. I will be there for about 3 weeks at the end of Feb. beginning of March BUT will likely only ski 2 days out of 3 coz I am an old fart [ 65 ] with a dodgy knee.

 

I am British but live on a sailboat in the Caribbean so can not pick up tickets in the UK or the USA in advance. I will be flying to Salt Lake City via Miami.

 

I want to get the best deal that I can on lift pass or tickets. Has anybody got some recomendations on this.

 

I may have somewhere to stay as I am swapping sailing time for a place in Salt Lake City but if that falls through I will need a place to stay.

 

Does anyone have any recomendations on some where cheap and cheerful [ with WIFI ]

 

Even Motel 6 would do.

The SLC ski shops (there's a rental place with 5 or 6 locations) have discounted tickets. It varies from about 10% at Alta/Snowbird to more at PCMR and Canyons. If you go to Park City they are not sold in the stores there. SLC regulars may have more ideas. Lots of hotels/motels in the city and the suburbs.

We stayed at the Majestic Rockies motel in Sandy.  Looks like their prices have gone up -- $45/night including tax.  (We got a weekly rate, $289 for a room with three beds.)

Very basic, but clean, good mattresses, and wifi.

I got a 2 day non tram ticket for Snowbird for $105 at the Costco in Sandy. It was couple seasons ago and the tickets weren't on display, so I had to ask the cashier, who had to ask the manager, but they were available.

Have seen the Extended Stay American in Midvale mentioned for those looking for a small place with a kitchen.  The LaQuinta in Midvale is a decent bargain if you are interested in a free hot breakfast and a pool with a hot tub, also has WiFi and sells the SuperPass.  In general, Sandy/Midvalle is often recommended because it's close to the entrances to LCC and BCC.  The ski bus has stops there.
