Help me plan my trip to Salt Lake City
I live England and have only ever skied in Europe. I have had a chat with my boss and I can get 4 week off in March so I plan on coming to Salt Lake city.
I've had a look and there looks to be a lot of good mountains reasonably close together and a lift pass is not too expensive (compared to elsewhere)
My plan in to fly into salt lake city, rent a camper van as it's cheaper than hotels or rooms off Air BnB and car.
My questions are, where should I definitely go? I ski 70% piste and off piste pretty well and 30% park, not very well.
Where can I leave a camper van? What are the laws like etc.or where are good caravan parks.
Anything else I should know?
Walmart parking lots are usually pretty chill about parking overnight. It sounds like you would probably like Brighton. They have some pretty good parks but the terrain there is pretty rad as well. PCMR is going to be the place to go if you were more park-oriented. There's a bit more on-piste terrain there as well.
if you get a chance, try and ski Alta or Snowbird for at least a day.
March is perfect for Utah. Snowbird and Alta are best for off-piste. Better/gnarlier terrain and more snowfall than other places. I like Snowbird more than Alta but both are awesome. Given the awesome off-piste terrain and snow in Utah there's no reason to waste time with park or piste.
This all sounds like good stuff, thanks. More questions
Where's the best place to buy a lift pass?
Anyone know a good place to rent an RV?
