Another Utah Thread

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Helo,

I know you get an abundance of threads seeking info on the 'ins and outs' of skiing in Utah, so don't expect anything too different here.

A few friends and I are planning another seasonal ski bum session to the mid west, I have skied fairly extensively through Nth America and Canada and feel the next logical progression is PC Utah. I am hoping to spend a few seasons there depending on the visa I can get being an Aussie.

I have done a bit of research but have been unable to find much info on season passes. Are you able to get a season pass/passport not only for PC, DV, & Canyons, but including SLC mountains (Snowbird, Alta, Solitude, Brighton)?

Also, from the looks of the demographics on the area, our best bet would be to buy a car once in PC to venture around seeking the pow pow.

being my first thread, thanks to any info you can give me

Do you plan to work at one of the resorts in the Park City area? If so you can a emloy pass that is good for 1 or 2 days skiing at the other Prk City area mountains. There are tons of out lets for discount tictets to all the other Utah mountains. If you can get here by the end of Aug most places have pre season deals for the local. a lease agreement works as a way to prove your a local.You can find a good used car in Salt Lake City.

thanks, I was planning on getting a bar job somewhere in PC, hopfully a bar owned by Ski Co. so I can work at a minimum at night and ski during the day. We wern't planning on getting to PC before October due to lack seasonal work. The outlet thing sounds good! does this 1 or 2 day a week pass renew every week skiing at all the resorts?

FYI if you ski bum in PC area your season goes to early april, if you choose LCC your season goes to end of May..........

Bar jobs are hard to come by. Everybody wants to work in the bars all night and ski all day. Better get to know the Utah liquor laws. Keep checking the the the resorts web pages for job openings. I'll warn you right now finding a place to live in Park City won't be easy. Last season there wasa shortage of housing this year it will be even worse.

You can live in downtown slc, and be w/in 45 mins of all the resorts (PC and cottonwoods). Work and housing will be easier to find.

The only pass that offers lift priviledges at all Utah resorts is the SkiUtah Silver Pass which is a whopping $2k! If you do get a job at one of the PC area resorts you should get ski privledges at that resort, but you also can hook with what they call the Triple Play which is a one or two a week ticket valid at the other two resorts (only resort employees get this). There's also a discount card they give out other intermountain resorts, but that's just a discount and it's limited to something like 4 per year.
Good luck -

There is also a SkiUtah Gold Pass. 4K last year, I think 100 days at each of the 7 major resorts. Maybe all of the resorts within the state, even. It's even transferrable...now if you can just find a way to make it a company "write-off," you have some good skiing to do. You could even sell it out to others on the few days you don't ski.

In all reality...Skiutahlocals.com has some good info. Nothing right now, but when the resorts get their ticket/pass sales going, you can find good deals.

utah gold pass

UtahSkier ... Utah must be a wonderful place if you can get a pass that lets you ski 100 days at each of 7 resorts ... 700 hundred days skiing a year! :

I looked into it -- it is actually only 40 days per year at EVERY resort in utah, so it's like 13 resorts at which you can ski. 4 cottonwood canyons, 3 in park city, 2 in ogden canyon, sundance, brian head, and some other random resorts I probably don't know about. Fully transferrable, 2800 $$. The silver is the same deal, non-transferrable, 30 days each, 2000 $$. SkiUtahLocals.com has info if anyone is truly interested. Like I said, business write off....

40 days is a bit lame for a season of skiing worth. Probably better of working at one of the PC resorts and getting discounted tickets to LCC when it dumps. which is pretty often by the looks of your annual snowfall

That's 40 days at every resort in Utah - not 40 total days.

word, it works out to...520 total ski days. I guess if you wanted to ski both alta/snowbird, solitude/brighton, and pc/deer valley/canyons each time you skiied (respectively) little cottonwood, big cottonwood, and Park City, you *might* be able to use all the ski days on the pass

but then again, probably not!
