Hi all,

I'll be staying in SLC I'll be attending a conference until 4pm Wed and have a flight booked to depart on Friday afternoon at 4.30pm

Between the conference finishing and my flight time I'm going to fit in some snowboarding but need some advice on where to go.

I have rented a car and intend on staying in a ski resort Wed & Thursday evening. I will be boarding all day Thursday but wondered if it would be possible to fit in some boarding Wed evening and Friday morning? For this to be possible I need your help to select the best resort and the best area to stay in?

I'd consider sacrificing the extra boarding if the conditions were a big factor, ie i'd prefer to travel further for excellent conditions all day Thursday with no boarding the other days.

Looking forward to receiving your advice...

Thanks in advance :)

Brighton, snowbird, and solitude are probably your best bets for better snow

Philip Rogich , Clearfield, USA, about 2 months ago

We are having an early spring, not much snow left. Many resorts have closed early. Also some resorts are ski only. Best bet is park city. I'm a skier but my kids are boarder. Most hardcore boarder prefer the Canyons. This like lists all the snowboard resorts in the state. http://www.utah.com/ski/board.htm

Brighton is one of the favorites around here. Snowbird a close second. Solitude is not as far up the canyon and wouldn't really be the best option with the weather we've been having.

Hi All. My boyfriend and I are headed to Park City to work in mid November. We're looking to to rent someplace that won't brea the bank and is on the free bus line. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Or if anyone is looking for a couple of extra roommates for the next few months :) Thanks!!

Is that in PC or SLC? We're not wanting to pay more than $900 between the two of us.

SLC is your only option if you want to live within reasonable budget.

Adam Frank , Phnom Penh, KHM, about 2 months ago

SLC or Heber are absolutely NOT your only option. I have lived here for over a year and have paid $1000 for a one bedroom in Prospector (PC). Plus it's furnished. Most of the places that I looked at when moving here were right around the same price. You're only problem is with the shorter seasonal leases it will be more. Most likely $1000 minimum..... Keep looking on Craigslist someone will help you out. Good luck :)

Hi Couchsurfers,
My boyfriend and I just completed a week long road trip from York, PA to SLC. We have an airbnb for a week in the 9th & 9th area and hope to find a place to live in that week. We've been looking on Craigslist and KSL, and have a few feelers out but would love suggestions if anyone knows of any available rental properties.

Thank you in advance!!

The 9th and 9th area is nice. But a bit expensive. I think most areas around Sugarhouse to the Avenues are a bit more expensive. Depends on your work location, Murray and Midvale might be good alternatives.

Pimonwan Jiranonda , Salt Lake City, USA, about 2 months ago

Kara,

I agree with the comment above. Sugar house, Downtown, and the Avenues are more expensive but also very convenient as you are close to many shops and restaurants. I used to live in an affordable apartment in the Avenues right next to a local coffee shop called Cafe on 1st, you might want to check it out. Cottonwood Heights is also nice if you enjoy skiing/snowboarding/hiking etc. If you don't mind the commute, check out Murray or Midvale or Centerville (North of SLC) and surrounding areas. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Thanks for your responses, we're still hunting. SLC is definitely unlike any other city I've ever lived in...

Next question and it might be a long shot...

Are there any Steeler bars in SLC???

Hey friends!

Does anyone have suggestions for a good/cheap hostel to stay this coming Sunday (23rd)? We are road tripping from Boulder to San Francisco and are looking to stay in Salt Lake for one night along the way.

Thanks!

I am looking for a really good hair stylist, that is not so expensive.... I will be for a day in SLC at 28 or 29 of August. Do you recommend someone? Or maybe you can do it? Every help is a good help.
