If your planning on staying in the canyon, just take one of the many shuttles up to Snowbird from the airport. You will not need a car up there if your staying put.
If your staying in the valley, or planning on staying at the 'Bird and going to other ski resorts other than Alta (which you can ride a free bus to), rent a 4x4. The canyon was restricted a lot this season. Days I would have not been skiing if I hadn't 4x4. Deeeeeep snow days. It's your ski trip, but do you really want to skimp on a few bucks and miss an epic powder day?
