This will be my husband's military retirement/2nd career place to live and work. We finally get to call the shots after 20 years. That's if he can find a suitable job out there in Ogden. I'm pretty sure he can.
Hill Field AFB hires many retired military.
I would agree somewhat.............. although I enjoy Snowbasin more than just about any ski resort(not just in Utah,) most Utah areas have their own "features to enjoy" as well a features they share with other Utah areas. By the way, my Sun Valley discount card works at Snowbasin.
I'm going to put plug in for Deer Valley because I personally think that Deer Valley is a great area to ski, with many different types of terrain, great groomers, bumps(yek!),excellent trees, and steeps that will make most skiers "pause." t does have "glitz" besides, which in this case means great service, great food, great instructors, and a well run mountain. $$$$$$
As with most areas, Snowbasin, Deer Valley or wherever, if you haven't skied there before, hooking up with a local or a good resort mountain guide can greatly expand your view of a resort; be sure you let them know what YOU are looking for!
