Ah, Bushwacker, I beg to differ. The Rendevouz caf has a nice salad bar, which is a good option if you are going to eat big at dinner. The Fork Lift is good also when it's not a crowded day.
I also have to say that the Shallow Shaft is my least favorite restaurant in the canyon. Overpriced for the quality of the food and (at least when I've been there) a snooty staff. Who needs that?
See if you can get into the Rustler for dinner. It's reliably good.
As to the important question of where to ski. Someone else has said this, and I'd like to echo it: Alta & Snowbird are best when explored.
Alta in particular is well suited for this. You can wind your way into trouble (unless you're a true expert), but there is almost always a way out that protects your dignity and health. And the joy comes from the adventure in that. At Snowbird, you have to be a bit more circumspect, as it is possible to get into serious trouble.
Hope this helps.
