Best snow and expert terrain anywhere
lack of beginner terrain,
I love Snowbird and Alta. There is great terrain and plenty of snow here. The best terrain is achieved via traversing. There is nothing better than living the 'If you can see it, you can see it' lifestyle.
I also like the lodging. We stayed at Peruvian Lodge. It is the polar opposite of Vail. A real ski lodge, with like minded people talking stories of fun and skiing.
If desired, you can ski the day you arrive and depart!
