March in Salt Lake.... Where to ski???

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
We will be heading to SLC Mar 7th thru the 11th. We would like to ski Alta, Canyons, Snowbasin and then 1/2 day at Alta again. Does anyone have a better plan or is this too good to change?

The resorts that you have listed are a good choice. But you should consider coming up to PC and ski at least one of the 3 resorts there.

This is just Something to think about.Alta has old slow lifts and they like it that way.On big weekends the lift lines can get pretty long.When I venture over there I like to do it on a weekday.So for your 1/2 day of skiing Think about Snowbird.

Utah, We did Snowbird last year for half a day on the weekend and it was very crowded. Also I didn't care for the mountain. Mineral Basin was awesome though, but I think everyone was skiing there, the line was horrible! Alta's lifts are a pain but the terrain is worth it. Thanks for the info.

PS is the Canyons worth the extra $$$ or should we try somewhere else??

I know its a little out of town but doesn't the Canyons count as PC?
as far as resort choices, its alll good!
Solitude is a fun day also!
Canyons is HUGE and worth the $ just to check it out. Snowbasin and the Canyons take some navigation points, they are big now do not be afraid to ask more questions as your trip draws closer. I have friends from Philidelphia coming that same weekend.
must be a trend.

let it SNOW!!

Yes, i would considered The Canyons as 'in' Park City. That's how the advertising is working.
As for skiing there, i still prefer the older part of the resort. Uncrowded, and served by a couple of high speed quads.
Haven't been there yet this season, but plan too soon, seeing how all three resorts offer a exchange pass for other resort employees.

I've only been to Solitude, Snowbird and Brighton. So far Brighton has been my favorite, but I hear very good things from the rest of the locals about Alta. I think I'll hit it this weekend.

Yep we think of the Canyons as being "in" Park City. I live right in Park City and the Canyons is not even a 10 min Drive from my front door.Check for deals on the Silver Pass Its a lift ticket that is good at all 3 Park City area resorts.Dreamscape a new gladed area at the Canyons Is alot of fun!can't wait to catch it with some new powder!

Don't do the Canyons, unless you're just dead set on it. Bad snow, bad snow, bad snow.

I'd recommend the Bird on the weekend vs. Alta. Also, try Deer Valley...a little fu-fu, but has some killer runs. And the off-piste stuff doesn't get as cut up due to the lack of powder hounds at the resort. Big drawback is price, though.

Have fun!!
