Trying to decide whether to commit to a six day lift ticket at PCMR now for $444, %25 off, or ski the other areas as well. We are traveling mid-March with 11 y.o. DS, who will probably do 3 days of ski school and ski with us the rest of the time. We skied Canyons last year, and didn't care for the layout, although DS loved his instructor. Skied DV five years ago, but DS hated the ski school (it was our third year there). Haven't skied PCMR in 20 years. We are staying at Marriott Mountainside PCMR, which would make it most convenient to ski (and easy for ski school and meeting other kids). DS is a solid intermediate skier, loves glades.
We have the 5th grade passport, which allows DS 3 free days skiing at most Utah resorts. The catch is that ski school, which is a whopping $260/day, only discounts by $30 if you have your own ticket. A child ticket one day is $54.
I am tempted to try one of the further resorts, like SnowBasin, but I am reluctant to drive an hour when we can just walk out the door and click into our skis. If we stay in Park City, is it worth going back to DV? I am an expert skier, and DH is advanced intermediate or better.
