Also nice but further from SLC is Snow Basin in Ogden. Very nice facilities and less crowded than Alta/Snowbird.
Solitude is also nice and uncrowded about 45 min from Cottonwood Heights.
I usually only go to Alta and Snowbird since they are 2 of the best skiing areas in the US.
Any advice on best location to stay in relation to nightlife and snow in mid-Dec would be gratefully received.
Good suggestions so far but will be very quiet so Park City could be the best call as more bars, restaurants etc and there is generally enough snow at that time and Canyons next door is also on the pass.Most resorts though are not fully operational so you will find up to 50% of the slopes only open due more of lack of people visiting.Same in Europe.Alta and Snowboard can still be reached from Park City and thats the backup call if early snow is not as good as normal.Breckenridge should also be considered as it is very high and Arapahoe is the highest ski area and that will definitely be well open but don't want to put you off Park City which is great.
Just picked up your post. Thanks for the advice. We have now booked to stay in Park City for 5 nights and will take your advice re other ski fields in close proximity should the snow not be sufficient locally.
Thanks again for taking the time to post.
