i really wanna be the guy that tells people to go to the mountain that i dont ski at, so i will because its actually the right advice in this case. sounds like brighton might fit you. lots of rails kept nice. some jumps mid season will keep you satisfied. they also have good slackcountry trees, tons of mini golf, and access to bigger lines via the skin if youre into it.
I would just get an Alta pass. The most fun place in the world, with the wildcat natural terrain park, castle jump, dirt mound jump at the base, etc. and terrain and snow to make you infinitely happy. I think I might love alta more than anywhere in the world
[ALSO: thought it'd be worth noting that this kid is the real deal - drives a forest-green suby, has bagged several hundred peaks including everything in the wasatch range, and can also boat race a 3.2 beer faster than the time it takes most of us to hiccup]
It's also a waste to not ski park if it's a shitty snow year... In my opinion skiing park all the time, then pow any day it snows, is the ultimate. Unfortunately Utah doesn't have one mountain or pass that is ideal for that. The best is to have PC pass and a pow pass, either to Alta, Bird, Brighton, or whatever.
that's what they said about last year and look how that turned out. I had an Alta/Bird pass and wasn't too stoked. If I was to go back I'd get either a Brighton or Solitude pass, or a canyons pass. Alta is sick but after a few days after a storm things get a little boring
I don't scream like a 12 year old girl when I ski park, so obviously powder is better.
