    Well, it looks like we have a good core of interest. Let's see where we can take this. Stay tuned.

My other concern would be getting there as it is a haul from SLC and if folks are flying in I imagine that we want to focus on a particular area(s) to make it easy. This is partly why I suggested LCC because Snowbird has good lodging and Alta is literally over the ridge.
    Can't go wrong with LCC.

    Might not be a bad idea to try to get a group rate at one of the hotels around the Mid Valley area. I've stayed at the Crystal Inn in Murray and it was a decent place. Reasonably priced and convenient to LCC and BCC.

    If everyone was staying at the same place, I'd recommend pitching in to rent a van (or vans). It's well worth the convenience of not having to take the UTA ski buses, especially with a group.

    In my prior trips to SLC, I did most of my days at Alta and Snowbird. If I'm planning to ski any weekend days (such as flying out Saturday and skiing on Sunday) I've found Solitude to be a great option to avoid the weekend crowds. It's also a nice "first day" spot to get acclimated, as the terrain is a tad mellower than I also like ti spend a day at Snowbasin. I get a kick out of the Utah locals acting like it's in the middle of nowhere. It's maybe an hour from SLC. It's probably easier to get to than Wachusett from Boston. To me, this is a world class ski area in every way; well worth the grueling one hour drive. A stop at the legenday Shooting Star Saloon on the way back is a must.

    My strategy is usually to get a Superpass for one day fewer than the total number of days I plan to ski. That covers the LCC/BCC areas. I'll play it by ear, and hit Snowbasin on the first bluebird day...most of it is so wide open, visibility can be a problem on flat light days.

    No question there's more than enough great terrain between Alta and Snowbird to keep anyone happy for many days. But, for me, one of the advantages of SLC is the ability to sample multiple areas during the trip. They each have their own distinct personality.

    I live in SE MA, just a couple of miles from the RI border.I think SLC to JH is comparable to me driving to Saddleback or Sugarloaf; both of which I've done as day trips.

    Alta closed this year with 392" total snowfall. That qualifies as a terrible year for them, as they've averaged well over 600" for the last 7 or 8 seasons.

    Their "terrible" season would be an above average season for the vast majority of ski areas in the Rockies, the East, or the Alps.

    I'm in, but I live in Utah now, so I'll definitely meet up with you guys, but don't count me in for any group discounts

    Mr. Trailboss,

    I'm in, but won't be spending any time at Alta.

    You're actually in a league of your own when it comes to day trips. No idea how you manage to stay awake!

    Me. I plan on hitting up Brighton as I've heard it rivals Mt Baker in a number of departments.

    Just ride Snowbird and we'll see you on the ridge.

    I'm thinking of becoming a truck driver because of my driving habits.

    Same. Brighton is on the hit list. I hear the sidecountry is amazing.
