Re: Snow Gone!

Cheap (ish) flights to SLC = The Great White Whale....but it can happen.  My success was late in the season though.

Southwest. Albany - SLC Dept 2/4 return 2/19 roundtrip $360. Ski bags no charge, can't beat that.

Re: Snow Gone!

And AirBnB for lodging, Mexican food down in the valley. Of course you need a car, but, skiing is expensive, I guess.

Re: Snow Gone!

Are you staying in Salt Lake, or near one of the mountains?

I've always wanted to go to Alta but it's like $350+/night to stay there.

Have you ever looked at the rates for a dorm bed at the lodges at Alta?  Get the same food, just have to share the room and no private bath.  I did that at Alta Lodge during a trip where my ski buddy and I had the choice of driving to JH or staying in SLC at the end of a trip after our friends had to fly home to get back to work.  The snow was better at Alta . . . I even extended my trip a couple days by changing my SW flight home to catch a snowstorm.

Or just stay in the Motel 6 in Midvale and take the bus.  I know a bunch of SkiSE guys who used to do an annual 5 day trip to SLC.  Four in a room at La Quinta Midvale (free breakfast, indoor pool and hot tub), use public transportation so no rental car needed.  That was in the days when the SLC SuperPass was the way to go to cover lift tickets.

I did the dorm bed thing at the Rustler.  It was fine.  My trip was late season, so I only had to share the room with one person, and only one night, but even if you are in with more the rates are decent considering you get nice meals.  Guy I met was nice, we ate together and had beers.

Very late season at Snowbird they offer pretty decent deals on hotel rooms.

Re: Snow Gone!

I got frustrated and book RT to SLC for week after next, staying at GMD in a private room. Expensive but I’m worth it.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

Re: Snow Gone!

I have stayed in slc twice. If your an early riser driving up to Alta mid week is not bad. There is also something to be said for sleeping at low elevation . There is also some great Mexican food in slc. That being said. If they get an ass kicking storm and u can’t get to mnt u May regret this move.

Re: Snow Gone!

The Ikon pass gives me 25 days in SLC, with five at Deer Valley, so a car in the valley makes sense. And, yeah, the mexican is good and cheap.
