I am planning to go to Utah in February. A few years ago I skied Alta, Snowbird, Snowbasin, and Brighton and wanted to try some new places. I am looking to go as inexpensive as possible.
Since 3 out of the 4 resorts you've listed are in PC, I would stay in the Kimball Junction area of PC which is closer to I-80 which you will have to take to get to PM. I have a 3BR condo in that area if interested. You can also search VRBO and HomeAway where you will find plenty of condos to rent.
Depends on how long is you vacation. if more than a week - consider spliting the time between PC area & PM/snow basin.
PM has some lodging at the top of lifts so you ski down to the base in the morning - kinda neat.
PM feels like Alta in the early '80s. The food is just as bad.
