Salt Lake City Area
Snowbird and Alta both have lodging fit for all types of travelers. Alta is set more for the die hard ski bum that is going to hit the slopes all day, eat and sleep type of vacation. Snowbird on the other hand has better restaurant choices, The Cliff Spa, bars, the tram to do some site seeing and much wider range of accommodations better fit for families. Solitude has most of the lodging accessible to travelers wanting to stay in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Solitude has 3 different complexes and some individual units spread throughout the area. The Village was where the movie "The Grinch" was filmed.... That's right Whoville Village. Great atmosphere! The perfect place for some solitude!
