I'm considering spending a week in Park City during Sundance in January. (I work in film exhibition, and it was all the time spent in Park City and Telluride for work that pushed me into skiing.) I would be on a budget, but a week of skiing in the morning, seeing a film or two in the evening, and hanging out with friends at night sounds pretty lovely.
I was hoping for some advice on lift ticket deals and general resort advice.
I've got Southwest points for the flight, and can stay with friends who are attending the festival, so that's all taken care of.
I've only ever skied the Sundance resort (my first time skiing as an adult five years ago), and I'd really like to ski Alta for two days. I might consider a Mountain Collective pass since I'd use the Mammoth and Squawlpine tickets, or I see that Liftopia has two-day tickets for ~$120.
I have a Tahoe Local Pass which gets me half-priced tickets to Canyons, so I'd probably ski there a day or two.
In the past I've had friends-of-friends who were lifties or who otherwise had tickets to spare for PCMR or the Sundance Resort, so that's a possibility. Sounds like I've got the makings of a good week for not too much money already, but is there a mountain I'm not mentioning that I should really check out? Any discounts that I should be aware of?
I'm sure I sound cheap, but I'm not working for the next couple of months so I need to be frugal!
