Where should we stay/ski with 2 kids?

This is our first time to hit Utah for skiing in years. We have two kids (4 & 9) who are new skiiers. I'd like to send them to a 1/2 day lesson at whichever resort we ski. We'd prefer to stay at a ski in/ski out lodge if possible (with kids, it's just easier-they bail at odd times...). We want to stay in a nice place that is comfortable but not bank-breaking (maybe under 300/night?). We're going in early March - were hoping to avoid the Spring Break crowds, but things are filling up. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Early March is definitely one of the busiest periods of the year. I would not worry about avoiding spring break as it's pretty consistently busy all winter, spring break or not.

Any of the three resorts will provide what you need ski-wise. It will be tough to hit your pricepoint for ski in/out at Deer Valley. At PCMR look at Silver King and Shadow Ridge - not exactly ski in/out but just a short walk. You can hit your price there. Marriott Mountainside is optimum but doubt you can get under $300.

At Canyons, Grand Summit is best choice but not under $300. Look at Sundial, Silverado or possibly the new Hilton Vacations property.

If you want to try DV, look at The Lodges which is about five minutes from slopes and most economical option.

Have fun.

Canyons/Westgate is pretty good for family since they have various amenities on site (kids room, recreation room, etc). The Westgate is right near the mountain, so it is very easy to get ski in/out.

You might be able to find good accommodation deals in saltlakecity craigslist or VRBO. You can get good rates from owners of condo or timeshare if dates are matching your travel schedule (can be half the price you have to pay otherwise).
