Another Happy New year from Sydney.
I would appreciate some suggestions on our second week. This is a mum and 15 year old daughter who love skiing. Previous seasons we have done Tahoe, Breck, Copper Mtn, Telluride and Snowmass - the later being our favourite. This is our first time to ski Utah.
First week all stitched up with a 7 night stay in Park City. On Sat 8 Feb have booked an intermediate SUV and will head to the other resorts. I know my daughter will just love Alta and Snowbird as she is a very good skier and loves the powder. I, on the other hand love the steep groomed runs with not much more powder than half way up the ski boot! Thus, I need suggestions of where we should base ourselves for about 4 nts accom. Factors to consider: we will have the SUV, though i don't really enjoy driving in snowy conditions ( did that last year on the way back to Denver airport - snowed all the way from Glenwood Springs until we got over Vail Pass - I tell you that was not very enjoyable). Do you think we should base ourselves in one location - like snowbird, which potentially limits ourselves to that resort if it snows ( As I won't be driving that car out of the parking lot!) or stay somewhere near the mouth of the Cottonwood Canyons, so we could try a different resort each day - if road conditions look bad here, I guess it still leaves the option of jumping on buses that still travel.
On another note we will take 1 or 2 days off to shop. Will probably do the Outlet store near Park City, but would like to know if it is worth having a shopping day in SLC. All suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
