Heading to BCC first week of February with the family. I am lucky enough to be going out 3 days early "to get my fill", hoping for lots of steep and deep. Family will arrive to ski Feb 7-10. Wife and kids (7 &11) are low to mid intermediates. They have only skied East Coast and are psyched to go West. Especially my 7yr old son, he can't wait to ski the trees. We are staying in Solitude and will probably ski Sol/Bright only. There will be plenty to keep them busy. so i have a few questions for the knowledgeable.
1. Planning on bringing mine and my wifes' skis. Looking to rent for the kids, we have boots for all. Any place you would recommend for rentals, Canyons sports, UT Ski and Golf, See and Ski?? They all look pretty close in price just not sure if it matters.
2. Lift tickets: I am considering SLC Superpass as I will be skiing 7 days. It averages out to about $70 a day. Not bad but not great as window prices for Sol/Bright aren't that much different. Guessing it pays off if I get to LCC before the family arrives. Not sure it is worth it for the wife? Any other tix deals out there I am missing? Daughter is free with 5th grade pass and son will be free at Bright I think but not Solitude.
3. Any suggestions on easy glades at either Sol/Bright appreciated.
I plan on atleast one of my free days skiing Solitude but I think I really need to spend the other two at Alta/Bird. If anyone is looking to make some turns Feb 4,5,or 6 let me know. I may take advantage of Alta's boarding pass ticket, if my flight does not arrive too late tueday night, and hit there the 4th. Thanks.
