Hi all. I'm writing because I need your advice.
I recently moved to UT from Europe. I live between Little and Big Cottonwood Canyon and I can't decide where to get my season pass for this winter.
I have never skied in UT. I have visited the resorts to get an idea of the terrain, I have read in forums, but it is difficult to decide!
I am a decent skier. I am used to skiing steeps and crappy snow in the Pyrenees mountains, and for that reason the terrain at Alta and Snowbird appeals to me. However, I will only be able to ski during the weekends, and I am afraid of AltaBird being crowded.
Also, since I'm not a local, the first months I won't know what's going on and where the goods are, and I guess that I will ski little fresh snow in AltaBird, since I have heard that the locals have an amazing ability to ski the fresh snow in a few hours. Maybe al Solitude/Brighton I might have a better chance? Night skiing at Brighton seems to be god, and that's a plus for getting the pass there.
Thanks in advance!
