I'm currently planning a spring break trip to Salt Lake City (3rd week of March). There will be 3 of us going (very similar ski abilities) and we're planning on buying a 4-day Super Pass and skiing some combination of the resorts.
I would rate my ski ability as strong intermediate / lower-level advanced. Most of my ski experience is in the Mid-Atlantic where I can ski everything. I skied Taos a couple years ago and really enjoyed the Hunziker area and hiked Kachina Peak and skied down Main Street, which is my absolute favorite ski experience I've ever had! With that said, I am very weak with mogul skiing and have never experienced powder skiing before.
My group is considering spending 2 days at Alta and 2 days at Snowbird. We are looking to dabble in some of the more advanced terrain, but obviously don't want to get in over our heads or in a potentially dangerous situation for our ability level. I've already read the unofficial guides for both ski areas, but I'm hoping to get some additional advice. Do you all feel there will be enough opportunities for skiers of our ability level to get out on some of the traverses and be able to enjoy some of the more advanced terrain? Which trails and areas should we start with once we're ready to move into the easier Advanced terrain (especially at Alta since there's no distinction of Advanced/Expert)?
Thank you in advance for your help!
