        Last year most people stayed at the Extended Stay America in Sandy, UT. I'll let someone who stayed there comment on the accommodations, but their prices are dirt cheap. I personally have reservations at the Residence Inn down the street - since I'm a Marriott Rewards member.

          It was ok. It was quiet around our room, but I think others had a problem with noise. Some strange characters were staying there. I'm not sure we'll stay there again.

            We would stay there again. It was clean, efficient, roomy, convenient and great value. As Sempai said, we did have a little noise pollution, but nothing bad enough to put us off. We have enjoyed much nicer hotels in the past, but prefer to spend out money on lift tickets and good food over accommodations. It's a palace compared to the cheap motels we used to stay at on Route 66 in Flagstaff!

                Yes, but we usually try to car pool. Last year we had three or four cars with 4x4. As long as you are in the Sandy area we should be able to get you a ride up the hill. The bus is OK on regular days, but not much fun on weekends and powder days.

                  The Residence Inn that I'm staying at has 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom suites (includes separate living room with sofa bed and kitchen) for $189 per night - these suites can easily house 6 people comfortably or two couples in the separate beds/baths and use the living room as the gear storage/drying area. . . They also have regular suites with one bed/bath for $139.

                        Thanks for the heads up Macro.

                        Mrs Wolf and I are booked into the Hampton from Wednesday night on. We have stayed at the Hampton before and even though it's a little more pricey than the Extended Stay, through it might be nice to treat ourselves this time around to the breakfast and hot tub

                        We will be driving up through Price on Wednesday morning, so Park City is up in the air for now.

                        For those who might be interested in sharing, there is a two bedroom apartment available in Sandy for less than $70 per night. It sleeps four, so that could be nice option.

                        Booking.com, booking dot yeah!

                              Exactly. Never been to a meet up, don't know of any times I've been on the mountain with other ski boarders that I didn't go with

                                Already booked airfare, car, and hotel. Lift tickets are the only thing missing at the moment. I'll likely do the Ski City Super Pass for cottonwoods resorts, but still thinking through options for Park City. Liftopia currently selling gift cards with bonuses ($125 for $100, $250 for $200, etc.) but not sure if that will help - I know Park City does not use Liftopia anymore, but can you buy Super Pass using Liftopia?
