Last year, when Vail bought Park City Mountain Resort and merged it with the Canyons next door (which they also own) they created a 7,300-acre mega-mountain, pouring $50 million into improvements, including a new restaurant and a high-speed gondola called Quicksilver that essentially connects the two areas. For the skier who wants to clock ten runs in before lunch, the merger is a win. Still, the resort (which has 41 lifts and 300 plus trails) and the town proper have retained its silver mining roots and ’80s ski-bum culture (expect to see lots of furniture made from old K2s), and if you’re a more advanced skier, you can’t beat the back bowls after a storm. Even if you only semi know what you’re doing on those rentals, you stay and ski in Park City to revel in the bohemian, cowboy-inflected vibe that thrums along Main Street. Look up and you’ll see a chairlift cruising above you—this is truly one of the last great American West ski towns.
This is a “groomers-only” type’s paradise catering mostly to out-of-towners, where a ski valet will help you unload your equipment from the car at the base (no hauling those Vokls on your shoulders from the parking lot). The ski school is one of the best in the country, as it should be, since Stein Eriksen, the stylish, Norwegian alpine skier who won Olympic Gold for giant slalom in 1952, served as the director of skiing for more than 35 years here before passing away in 2015. Snowboarders are still not allowed, but nobody’s stopping anyone, regardless of your boot and binding choice, from tipping back a few glasses of wine at the Brass Tag.
Located at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, Alta is a purist resort. Locals, Europeans in Bogner one pieces, and Americans who know what they’re doing come to Alta for its deep powder (it often gets the most snow in the state at 550 inches annually) and 2,200 acres of skiable terrain, some of it steep and fast (35 percent of the mountain is meant for more advanced skiers). This is as old-school as it gets—no snowboarders allowed—and you’ll still find vintage two-seater chair lifts in operation here, not to mention a number of telemarkers (an incredibly difficult technique that mashes up Alpine and Nordic skiing). Be sure to tick off the Supreme Bowl, packed with tight, fast couloirs, when conditions permit, which this being Alta they generally do.
Also up Little Cottonwood Canyon and next door neighbors with Alta, this locals' favorite is generally known for perpetually being blessed by the powder gods (it gets 500 inches annually on average). The Summit Tram (which fits 125 people) takes you up 2,900 vertical feet in about seven minutes, meaning you can knock out quite a few runs here quickly. The snow and 2,500 acres of terrain are incredible and challenging (you’ll see some damn good skiers here). Not incredibly beginner-friendly, but it will make an intermediate skier better in one vacation.
Deer Valley bought the resort last year but managed to keep its rugged appeal intact. These days more out-of- A quintessential locals’ mountain in Big Cottonwood Canyon where you used to see fewer tourists (and the ones you did see couldn’t believe their luck in finding the place). That’s slowly changing, in a good way, when tonier towners are discovering what Utah folk have known for years: at Solitude, you never wait in a lift line, and as you get to know the mountain it rewards by being much bigger than it appears from the base.
Affordability... Utah Family Magazine ranks Brighton #1 for family affordability and terrain.
Kids ten and under always ski/ride free, so families love Brighton. Day tickets are most affordable. Plus, squeeze more into your trip with an a.m. or p.m. ticket. Ski the day you arrive and before you fly out. Terrain and snow quality...Brighton truly gets "The Greatest Snow on Earth®" averaging 500+ inches annually, but it topped 700 inches last season.
There’s five-star grooming as well as chutes and trees for those who like white knuckle terrain. Three awesome terrain parks link the top of the mountain to the base. All trails can be reached by high-speed quads. Families ride together, take different trails, and meet at the bottom.
Located only 40 minutes from Salt Lake City, Snowbasin Resort combines 3,000 acres of world-class skiing with luxurious lodges and amenities. Steeped in history, the resort opened in 1940 and is one of the oldest operating ski areas in the United States. It proudly hosted the 2002 Olympic Games’ Downhill, Combined and Super-G races. Snowbasin Resort’s uncrowded slopes offer adventure seekers of all abilities wide open bowls, steep chutes, evergreen forested gullies and beautiful, long rolling groomers. The resort’s majestic lodges feature stunning views, grand fireplaces and marble finishes. To top off the experience, Snowbasin Resort’s award-winning dining is consistently rated in the top 3 by Ski Magazine and features a variety of cuisine from locally sourced ingredients in their five slope side restaurants. For those who like luxury with their adventure, Snowbasin Resort offers both at an incredible value.
With over 8,000 acres of skiable terrain, Powder Mountain is one of North America's largest ski areas. This is the place if you want endless powder or untouched corduroy.
Even on the busiest day, you may only find one skier per two acres of terrain. Almost 3,000 acres is a traditional lift served resort with an abundance of groomed trails and powder runs. The remaining 5,000 acres is nirvana for powder hounds.
Newcomers sometimes missed the best runs for their level of skiing and shredding so a team of locals was recruited to share their knowledge. Guests may choose from a free orientation over groomed cruisers with a Mountain Host or a day with a Mountain Adventure Pro making fresh tracks through secret glades, chutes & open bowls. After a few runs with a Pro or Host, guests naturally feel part of the Powder Mountain family.
HOMEWOOD SUITES BY HILTON
We will be staying at the Homewood Suites by Hilton located in Midvale, Utah (south of downtown Salt Lake City). Our rooms will be all suites with separate bedrooms, living, and full kitchen. Homewood Suites offer a complementary hot breakfast each day and a complementary light meal and beverage (wine & beer) during happy hour Monday – Thursday. During our 2010 stay at the Homewood Suites, many of the group did not buy dinner Monday through Thursday, completely satisfied with the Happy Hour. If the happy hour is not enough, and you do not want to cook in your rooms, there are eight restaurants within easy walking distance and several others a short van ride away. There is also an indoor hot tub, swimming pool, exercise room, coin laundry, and in-room high-speed internet.
