If I want to get creative for a day, and conditions are OK, I may take the bus to Sundance-I've never been there.
Sundance is a very nice resort, although rather small. I always try to fit in a trip there... how do you get there from SLC though? If you go, the best eatin' is at the deli at the base, it's hidden. There's a conference building skiiers left of the main base lodge, there's a creek and bridges and things, it's all of stone and wood. The deli is way better than the usual overpriced burgers and things.
It's good you plan to use TRAX and the UTA ski buses... because on Sundays, they are the only buses running. I used to live up the road a bit in Murray, and getting down to Fort Union to catch the si bus to work was a nightmare on Sundays. I ended up buying a bike. Naturally, it always snowed on Sundays.
