SKIER219 and other posters about a 2007 Utah Trip,
I moved this part of the "days skied" discussion to a separate topic since I think it is a great idea and deserves more prominent cultivation. Often we have discussed SkiDCers getting together and this would represent the ultimate get together...UTAH or Tahoe, or wherever.
I personally really really like UTAH skiing
, and have indulged probably 15 trips since I started so many years ago. I have stayed in Sandy, Park City, Snowbird and Ogden. I have skied Alta (in MHO, the MECA), Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude, Park City, Deer Valley (the ultimate overall ski experience), Brian Head and Snowbasin. I have found expensive lodging (Alta/Snowbird), less expensive (Sandy/Midvale at numerous hotels such as Extended Stay, Homestead Inn, in the city at Little America, Marriot, etc., and at several places in Park City. By the way, there is a less glamorous hotel and therefore less expensive hotel in PC called APRES SKI (has a web site) for $75+/- a night, within easy walking distance of lifts.
I personally would vote for staying in PC for four days, no car needed, then either SLC or Sandy/Midvale (or at Snowbird) for another few days. If at the Bird then again no care needed. This way the folks that wanted to rent a car and go elsewhere would have the opportunity to do so, but creature comforts and less logistics would remain for us all. Whether we skied together, or chose different areas, whatever...it would still be a hoot. The best prices are available in January (except for the last part when the Sundance Film Festival takes place), and later in early April. While no ski location can guarantee quality deep snow, Utah has about the best track record.
So, I say, let's really pursue this idea. We will never get all our schedules to mesh, but if we work at it early enough there is the best chance of success.
