First time there, we all said that if we got tired, we could always go take a nap in the bathrooms ... truly exorbitant!
Oh and on where to stay ... closest place to get decent a motel/hotel is Ogden. If you want to ski mainly Snowbasin and in that area, I would not stay in Sandy ... too far to drive each day and the evening traffic is pretty bad. To get to Snowbasin, you take the 12th St exit off the interstate, headed to Ogden Canyon. There are several chain type places located along the way.
One more suggestion on places to stay is go thru http://VRBO.com
. VRBO is the acronym for vacation rental by owner ... you can find a large selection of 1BR, Studio, 2BR etc located in Eden and otherwise close to Snowbasin.
While there you should check out Powder Mountain as well. It does not have the steeps like Snowbasin and not as fru-fru, but it has some great terrain and is totally uncrowded.
