We are a Swedish family with 2 boys, 9 and 11, living in NC.
The kids have skied for about 5 years and last year we spent a week in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, which we loved.
We all prefer groomed slopes but my husband wants some powder.
We all ski black and blue slopes but the kids are more prone to blue.
We love to stay ski in/ski out and skiing is the focus of the week. We don't need much other entertainment, some decent food now and then but we prefer to get something in the condo and just rest in the evening. We can do without shopping etc.
We we're looking at Alta but did not find any resonably priced accomodation. We are now looking at the Canyoons/Park City but the reviews of the skiing itself seems so and so. Have also been looking at Solitude and/or Brighton but they seems kind of small for a week of skiing. Or is it ok to stay and ski one of them for a whole week?
How far is the drive from Solitude to Alta if we would like to check that out for a day? We do prefer not to use the car all the time.
Any other suggestions whenwe are planning a February get away in Utah. We are heading back to Sweden so this might be the only time we get to ski in Utah.
