ExtraButteryI was just in Utah for about a week. Best idea for lodging would be to get an Airbnb in salt lake. Its way cheaper than a lodge at any resort. Also, u could rent a car or use the public transport which is really good in Salt lake. U could probably just ask if anyone is down to carpool on ns.I'm sure someone would respond. You're gonna be there during Christmas week so anywhere is gonna be packed but, u should def stay away from Park City as that is the most packed. Unless you really wanna ski the park. I would recommend powder mountain as it is usually empty and there is cat skiing If you are looking to do that. It's super local and not touristy. You can find powder weeks after snow. Alta is sick but more crowded and gets tracked up quick. All in all though it should be super fun.
Great advice here!
Powder Mountain is still kind of a hidden little gem.
