That'd be ideal, but I wasn't able to choose. We'll see how it goes!

Ok, I just booked the Extended Stay also. I figured I'd better get on it before all the rooms get snagged up. You guys already sold out all the king beds.
For those not getting the Super Pass for Westfest, Liftopia currently has one day lift tickets for Snowbird on Friday January 27th for just $59. They also have Solitude tickets for Saturday January 28th for $62.
Do we need to do the SuperPass for flexibility in case the dates we will be at each resort changes, or are we locking those dates down? Even the bus only costs $4.50 one way and I don't suspect we would use that feature of the Super Pass more than one day if at all?
I don't mind buying the Super Pass (which will probably be about $35 more expensive) if we want flexibility to decide last minute which resort we ski each day. . . That's what I would do if I were going by myself. But if others are going to buy on Liftopia and lock down ski days, then maybe we should all take advantage of the lower prices?
I look into this every year and it is always a close call between the Super Pass and individual tickets. There are pros and cons to both. The Superpass by far gives you the most flexibility and convenience. Once you activate your pass on the first day you never have to fuss with ticket windows again. It also gives you the chance to change resorts if you want to. The first year Scott and I enjoyed the trees at Brighton so much we actually bailed on Snowbird and went back to Brighton instead. You also have to chance to reschedule the entire trip and not necessarily loose your money. The ski bus is included as well. I love convenience, so would get the Super Pass if it were just me doing all four days.
Liftopia is a much riskier proposition because it locks you in and is non refundable. Although the prices look a little cheaper, the slightest change in your plans can cost you a lot. Tracey and I have to get back to work, so we are not skiing Alta on Monday. Without the cost variance covering the more expensive resorts, it makes more sense for us to buy the days individually. We also have folks who may just join us for a day or two, so I was mainly putting up the prices for them.
I went with the super pass. It's awesome not waiting in long ticket lines on pow days
Tom, did you make it to Alta during your Utah visit last season? Alta is definitely worth hitting up. It has a very cool vibe, varying terrain, and is skier-only.
I'm 99.9% sure you can't reload the Super Pass from a previous year. Once activated they're only good for 14 days.
SO far this is how the schedule looks with Liftopia pricing.
Friday 27th Snowbird $59
Satruday 28th Solitude $62
Sunday 29th Brighton *No deal yet*
Monday 30th Alta *No deal yet*
Although, I shouldn't knock Park City too much - once we got away from the crowds on Friday and found Jupiter Bowl, we were in heaven! I just wish we had found that area 24 hours earlier. . .
Sempai - let me know what you and Angie finally decide on the tickets - Liftopia or Super Pass. . .
Do tell more, please? If this deal is still on, it might change where I go skiing that week
April was warm, even though we had close to 2 feet of snow during our stay. We had absolutely no issues driving up the canyon with all-season tires on a front wheel drive rental car. But mid-winter it might be different, so winter tires on a 4x4 might be best... I did not like the idea of waiting for the shuttle buss, having your own car seemed a lot more convenient.
