I am thinking of staying at the Avenues Hostel in Salt Lake City due to it's affordability allowing me to extend my trip. Their site states being able to get to the Cottonwood Resorts via Bus and Bus/Trax combinations from the hostel. Link thier page below, if you click on the "ski Info" link and scroll down it shows their recommended routes.
My alternative would be to rent a car (sorry, yet another post debating to car or not to car in Salt Lake) But if the connections are good I may not need one and if I rent a car it would be a compact two wheel drive so I would take public transportation in dicey canyon conditions anyway.
Has anyone stayed at the Avenues Hostel and do you recommend it?
Has anyone used any of their public bus/trax routes to resorts, again, recommend or not?
If I rent a car what would be my best option with restricted conditions in the canyons? I'm thinking of driving down to the Fort Union Boulevard Park And Ride in Midvale and catching one of their earlier buses up, or just skiing Park City.
Any advice or an idea I'm not thinking of ?
