Plan is to ski at least 6 days, maybe all 7 (depends on group and conditions). Staying in PC.
Would like to at least do Alta 2 or 3 times, Snowbasin, Deer Valley, maybe Powder.
Have a variety of questions:
1) Weekends vs weekdays -- where is the best weekend skiing in terms of avoiding crowds / long lift lines?
2) I'm skiing a pair of K2 PE's (186) and my wife is on some Rossi Bandit model (I forget which specific one). I've skied the PE's in 16" of powder and been happy, but I dont' think the Bandit's are the best tool for her in powder -- and in fact I'd like to get her on something else anyway. Where is a good place to rent her something like a Prophet 90 for the week?
3) Instruction - my wife would like to take some lessons, she just decided this past weekend. Locally it won't happen - we are getting buckets of rain right now and we have only one weekend between now and when we leave. Any recommendations for instruction for her in Utah? I'd rate her a solid intermediate, but timid. I think a half day, or a couple half days would be best. If you can recommend a mountain / instructor, etc - that would be great.
