I will be traveling to the Salt Lake City area during the Thanksgiving holidays. I plan to stay in either Park City or Alta. I hope to do some skiing; however, I realize the early-season conditions may be iffy (I would love to be able to push the trip back a few weeks, but that is a different story). Anyway, what is everyone’s opinion on Park City vs. Alta during this time? From my research, it appears that Alta has a much better chance of having a suitable amount of terrain open. But, if the weather does not cooperate, I don’t want to be stuck at Alta with nothing to do. In other words, it seems that there are many more attractions in Park City if skiing is not possible.
I appreciate any help/advice that anyone can provide.
