Not so much at Snowbird and Alta but you notice it at Solitude and brighton, and, as I stated, especially in Ogden.
SLC is just one part of the Wasatch Front. There are many mormons in the suburbs, they send their kids skiing/boarding on Sat then take them to church on Sunday. Living in SLC doesn't feel anything like living in the suburbs, just like most cities.
Snowbasin and Powder draw from Weber and Davis county. Davis county is very mormon except for the air force base, Weber is very mormon outside of Ogden. Most of the working people in Weber county can't really afford to ski, so that thins out the resort already. Those who can afford to ski tend to be mostly LDS, then they send their kids to church on Sunday.
The Park City resorts don't really count, they are busy both Sat and Sun.
Utah is a very complicated state but there are a lot of smoking hot women here so it kind of evens out the quirks.
