Since cruising is your thing, I'd have to say that the best groomers in Utah are at Snowbird, Brighton, the Canyons, and Snowbasin.
Snowbird and Brighton get the most and best quality snow. Snowbird has some steep top-to-bottom groomers that run continuously on some 3000 feet of vertical. Riding fast, it'll take you 10-15 minutes to ride top-to-bottom covering about 4 miles of trail.
Brighton has some of the best grooming in the state, and the place is just built for snowboarding, which is why you see so many boarders there. It's like a natural terrain park. Ton of fun trails, well spaced trees, huckable (and landable) cliffs, log jibs, and lots of pow make it fun.
The Canyons has long, if somewhat flat, groomers. The snow isn't as good or as plentiful as BCC/LCC, but it's fun for a day.
Same thing goes for Snowbasin. It's awesome on a pow day, but otherwise kind of flat and its low elevation makes the snow get manky quickly. Long groomers, albeit low angle for the most part except for the John Paul area.
Again, if you want the local's tour, I'd be happy to show you guys around.
