Recommendations for same day skiing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm flying into SLC at 11am on a Tuesday. I'd like to ski one of the cottonwood canyon resorts. Where am I going to get the most for my time at? Which one has the latest closing lift? I know PCMR does night skiing but I'll probably be back there Thursday and Friday and want to see a different resort if possible.

Also, anywhere I can pick up a discounted lift ticket?

Alta because their Collins and Sunnyside lifts don't close until 4:30.  Discount tix at any ski n see.

Alta pre-paid online prices seem to be the same as Liftopia these days.  $72.99 on Tuesdays Jan-Mar.  Window price for half-day 12:30-4:30 is $73, which includes $5 for a re-usable RFID card.  If you end up getting there later, 2:30-4:30 is $40 at the window.

 

PCMR night skiing is only a few trails near the base, plus a terrain park.

Didn't there used to be some offer about skiing free the day you landed?


Oops. Guess that's gone. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g57097-i800-k7014710-QuickStart_cancelled_No_more_same_day_flying_and_skiing-Park_City_Utah.html

Yep, the freebie deal in Park City is long gone.

 

There was a deal for a season or two within 24 hours of arrival at SLC airport for Mon-Thu at Alta/Snowbird but that seems have disappeared too.

I'd recommend Brighton: you can get a twilight ticket (12:30-9:00 pm) and explore Millicent, Great Western, and Snake Creek while the sun's out, then ski under the lights as long as you last. I don't think there are discounts available for the twilight ticket, but the SkiCity multiday passes include night skiing at Brighton, if you're going to be back for a couple more days on the Cottonwood Canyons side.

 

Alta (as mentioned) and Snowbird both have lifts that spin until 4:30, but both are also worthy of a full day (at least). Of the two, Alta's probably a slightly better bet, since Collins (open 'til 4:30) is a more entertaining and faster lift than Wilbere.
