Deer Valley/Park City vs. Alta/Snowbird

My girlfriend and I are looking to ski in Utah the lasy week of February (from the 24th to the 27th). At first we were going to ski Alta/Snowbird since the skiing is tougher there. After looking at lodging options though, we're having second thoughts. The Cliffs sound nice, but at $400 a night, it's a bit pricey, and it sounds like the Alta/Snowbird area is a bit dead at night.

Should we instead consider the Deer Valley / Park City area? Any experiences are welcome.

If you want to ski/ride Alta/Snowbird; you could look into staying down in the Salt Lake Valley.

(Look in Sandy, Midvale or Murray).

You will have about a half an hour bus ride or drive every morning. And you could miss out on skiing time if the canyon is closed in the morning for avalanche control.

But you will save a lot of money and there are more places to eat down in the valley and you could go into downtown SLC for even more things to do.

Parck City is more of a traditional ski town. There are so many places to stay there.
