Solitude is very underrated. It has quality and variety terrain from groomers to open bowls and shutes.... Food is was cheaper than say park city!

    Tks.

Definitely the LCC road tends to have more traffic on a powder day. My understanding is that this is partly because Honeycomb Canyon is often closed for avalanche danger when the powder's freshest, and otherwise BCC doesn't have as much terrain to attract the hard-core powder skiers. Those who want to get the best possible powder skiing as soon as possible (and are willing to race to get it) tend to pick Snowbird; the powder hangs around longer at Brighton, Solitude, and Alta--but you might have to wait a little longer.

I totally agree and that's why I'll be getting a mid-week pass next season.  Plus, the food has been upgraded due to Deer Valley buying it and is very good!   Love all the off piste options.

Sounds like Cherry Peak's on track to open their summit lift this coming season (assuming it snows): https://liftblog.com/2016/07/19/cherry-peak-will-complete-summit-lift-for-2016-17/
