planning last minute Utah trip: staying at Super 8 in Midval, getting Super Pass and using the UTA bus for transport. Anything I should know?

any and all comments welcome.  Just my wife and I, two intermediate boarders from the East coast.  How is Brighton Mtn?

Very fun mountain. Lots of rolly-polly terrain. Lots of it available for intermediates.

If you are going to be there from 1/30 to 2/4 you can hook up with the group at the Gathering.  You don't have to be great skiers as there are all levels there.

Are you getting the Super Pass on line, or at your motel?  If you buy the Pass through the place you are staying it is cheaper than the on-line price.  I do not know if they sell them at that Super 8, but many other motels in that area do.

LB1 let us know how you find the Super 8 Midvale. I stayed at the National 9 on my trips last year but thinking of staying at the Super 8 this year.

Thanks!

LIBoarder1, I'll be doing the same thing starting this Monday, staying at Super 8 MidValley too.

If you buy the Super Passes from Super 8 it's cheaper, because Super 8 is part of their "participating properties": http://www.visitsaltlake.com/ski/superpass/
I am doing 3 out of 7 for $168.

I'll ski:
Day 1 -- Alta
Day 2 -- Solitude + Brighton night skiing if there is shuttle/bus between the two resorts
Day 3 -- Brighton + night skiing

thanks for the bus schedule James.  We have decided to head out there the first week in March instead, looking forward to your hotel/mountain report.
