Please share your UberSki experiences to/from SLC and Alta

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

We are considering UberSki or UberSki XL to / from SLC airport and Alta. Traveling Sunday to Sunday in early April - 4 people total (1 adults and 2 kids) and 2 sets of skis. Have you used Uber and what was your experience?

 

How is the availability of drivers at the airport?

Hoe is the availability of drivers leaving Alta? 

 

TIA!

Are you staying at a lodge at Alta?

 

Here's the thread with SLC Uber comments from earlier this season:

If you would like to meet up with others for a few runs, add your dates to the ongoing thread for Alta:

Yes, we are staying at the Alta Lodge!

 

That thread came up in my search and I was wondering if we should expect UberSki to not have many drivers available. They stayed closer to the airport than Alta, so I was thinking it may be even harder for us to get a driver to take us back.

 

Another thread also found surge pricing going back on a Monday morning, which would put Uber more expensive than Alta Shuttle. So, just trying to gauge if those two experiences are the norm.

 

Will post our dates!

I'll be at Alta Lodge in early April as well.  Note that Alta Lodge can make the shuttle reservations for you, which turns out to the be easiest approach.

 

Look forward to meeting you! :)

Are you signed up for the Alta Performance camp while staying at the Alta Lodge?  My wife is signed for that camp in the first week of April and lodging at Alta Lodge is included as part of the package.

Nope, not doing the camp.  I meet up with friends for my late season stay at Alta Lodge.  My ski buddy and I will do a semi-private lesson with Arthur Haskell one morning.  I've worked with him before.

 

Are you going with her or is she going alone?

She is going alone.  I've already gone skiing alone a few times this season so we need to bring balance to the Force.  By the way, I used to live in Durham for 5 years but the Blue Devils aren't doing too well this year...

Hmm . . . I'm a Tar Heel.  But I married a man (non-skier) who become a Dookie after he moved to NC.  So I guess I can still talk to you.  ;)

 

I'll make a note.  Look for a PM.
