my uncle used to rent out his second house there, but currently it has a pretty bad water problem.
The Marriott Residence Inn is also another nice place to stay.
If you get tired of living the ski bum life, heres some Restaurant Ideas:
Lonestar Taqueria has been serving up local eats for a while and is famous for their excellent tacos.
Snowbird has really cheap lift tickets. DONT get the tram lift ticket, its a waste of a few extra bucks.
Powder Mountain also has pretty cheap lift tickets, not to mention $15 snowcat rides and some of the best powder in the state!
If youre sick of paying for lift tickets, you can hike up guardsman pass for some awesome home made terrain park features AHEM bone zone AHEM
Ski Trucks in salt lake is a super awesome place to pick up some cheap skis/boots/bindings/jackets/pants/whateveryouwant. They sell it all here, and probably have an inventory of a few thousand USED skis and snowboards.
Twin Peaks ski shop at the base of the cottonwoods is the best place ever to get your skis tuned and ready for the next day. Literally, Mr. Tim Lewin does pretty much everything overnight. Collin Collins actually takes his skis there.
Black Diamond Equipment Headquarters will take care of all of your backcountry equipment needs. stop in for some skins or just to browse through some of their fancy skis and equipment.
Jiberish Vault in Park City is also always a nice place to stop by. Who knows, you might even see Mr. Walnuts. :)
Rent a car from somewhere other than at the airport! Maybe at an enterprise in salt lake, i dont know.
Southwest Airlines. Need I say more?
Thanks for reading and please contribute any awesome advice or recommendations i might have missed!
