this, but it is outside of ogden, an hour-ish north of slc.
if that is a problem, go to solitude.
even the busiest day at solitude isn't as busy as an average day in lcc.
christmas day itself isn't too terrible, many of the utah residents do the family/church thing so it's mostly tourists on the hill i've noticed. still busy though. this year, with christmas being on a friday, expect that sat and sunday (and maybe thursday too, a lot of people get christmas eve off) to be super packed though, especially if there is a good amount of snow by then.
stores (like shops and such) will most likely be closed because it is 11 at night on christmas except for 7-11's and taco bells, but that is kind of par for the course anywhere.
you may find some bars open, i got wasted at a bar last year on christmas eve and christmas day. grab a city weekly from a stand anywhere (free weekly newspaper with lots of bar ads that are all over) and look for the ads that will say "open on christmas day" or something like that.
liquor stores won't be because of the holiday and because of the time, they close at 7 or 9 depending on the store. they aren't open on sunday's either, so go on the day after christmas to stock up.
sorry i can't hook you up with a ride, i'm doing the exact reverse trip to yours, unfortunately i have to spend christmas in wisconsin.
