So I have 7 days of vacation that I have to use before the end of the year. In past years I've used these leftover vacation days to ski here locally in Colorado throughout the month of December, catching powder days whenever possible. With there being little to no interesting terrain open here in CO, I'm thinking of taking off for a road trip to Utah in the next week or two.
With the holidays coming, and not wanting to spend $600+ on this trip, my plan is to skip the hotel and sleep in my car most nights. I have done this quite a bit over the years and I have the vehicle, sleeping bag and gear to get through a few very cold nights with no problems. I may book one night at a hotel mid-way through my trip to shower up and get a good night's rest.
My question is where in LCC would be a safe bet to park and sleep overnight? I know there are few overnight parking lots at Alta, but I'm not sure what their policies are or if they are paid lots. Walmarts usually allow overnight parking, and there is one right in Sandy that might be my best bet.
Curious if anyone has done this or has any better recommendations?
