Glad I found this community as there's a ton of good info on this forum on both locations and solo skiing. Based on some good threads here and lack of success rallying friends to travel outwest I've decided to take the plunge and plan my first solo ski trip for sometime in March this year.
The question I'm struggling with now is where to stay. I'm not really concerned about nightlife, I'm going primarily for the skiing and am content just relaxing at the end of the day. Given this I'm thinking of hitting up Solitude/Snowbird or Snowbasin on a 4/5 day trip.
Options I've contemplated are hotels in Sandy, dorm room at a lodge at Alta/Snowbird, or hotel near Snowbasin. Main thing I'm trying to balance is cost and convenience, ideally I'd spend under $150 a night.
I'm pretty comfortable in any mountain in the southeast (not saying much) but have only been outwest once. Based on this I feel like Solitude and Snowbasin would have the best range of terrain for me. I've heard great things about Snowbasin from friends but have also heard the snow can be less predictable.
Would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions for the upcoming trip!
