Bountiful, Utah

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

Continuing my request for info...anyone got anything to say about staying in Bountiful for a couple of days?  I'm thinking I could ski Snowbasin from there.  I got an incredible deal on Hotwire for a place there, and it seems like reasonable driving both to SLC and Snowbasin.  I don't really need a great place on/near the slopes and am trying to go cheap.  I'm expecting to have to drive to ski and nightlife if I have the energy.  Thoughts?

It's just a wide spot along I-15?  Not  a bad location for Snowbasin, but it's a haul to LCC.

It is not much of a town, and has serious Mormon influence, so no nightlife. Good luck finding a bar or liquor store.  That said, it would work as a convenient base for skiing Snowbasin and Powder Mountain but, as Shredhead pointed out, it is a pretty long way to Alta or Snowbird. If you hit the weekday commuter traffic or snowy roads it could be 1.5 - 2 hours to get to Alta from there, but less to Park City, Canyons and the backside resorts.

Bountiful is not 1.5/2hrs from Alta.  Mabey 1 hour at the most.  If roads are bad all resorts are 2 hours form anywhere in Utah.  I'm guessing Bountiful is 40 min. to Snowbasin and 1hr to Powder.

The way things are going, Bountiful is almost North Salt Lake City these days. As said above, it's very LDS... a lot of the satellite and smaller towns in Utah seem to be that way.

Thumbs down. Bountiful is about the last place I'd ever want to stay. Maybe if skiing/eating/sleeping was your plan, but if you want nightlife, Bountiful ain't going to deliver. I'd stay in either Salt Lake area or Ogden and just commute--or split the trip up. Unless you're okay forgetting about nightlife and just taking the deal. Layton might be a little better; it's between Salt Lake and Ogden and has a number of bars/restaurants--not a big party town, but a center for shopping/eating.
