If you don't know the layout, go downstiars to baggage claim together, then one guy walks across the street to get the rental car, while the others get luggage and then meet at the pickup island, the 2nd island. The driver will have to leave the airport and staying left drive around it a big loop and back to the island. Don't eat at the airport, because sometimes the rental car line can be long, so don't doddle once you get off the plane. (but anyway, I usually get in at 10:30am and stop for a quick pizza at Sbaro's) Stop for a quick bite somewhere on the way and find a parking lot to do the SLC shuffle, unpacking the bags and getting dressed for skiing. You should be out of airport by Noon and on your way, skiing a little after 1pm.. Try not to be too anxious, you should get your skiing in.
On the way back it's handy to drop all the luggage off with the luggage porter on one of islands before turning in your car. I'll be doing QuickStart also this year, I was going to fly out in the evening, but hey now, Free Skiing is worth getting up at 4am.
