Need some help with condo selection.

We have the option of Red Pine at The Canyons, Three Kings and Silvertown Condos in Park City, which is the best and why? We unfortunately are traveling during the last part of Presidents week, in California we don't get a week so we were unpleasantly surprised to find out it was an entire week, but already bought plain tickets. How crowded does it get?

Please HELP!!!

I can give my 2 cents worth about Red Pine and The Canyons but not about the others, Red Pine is a little older than some of the other condos but depending upon who owns the condo and how well they take care of it it can range from dumpy to newly remodeled. It is very close to The Canyons base and is walkable. The Canyons does get crowded on Presidents day but not as much as they used to because they turned Tombstone into a 6 pack from a 4(i spent 2 hours in a lift line before they did that).

Three Kings is older, but it's very convenient to downtown and to PC. I was there last year and it was terribly crowded. If you are taking ski lessons they have a tendancy to book up so I'd book them now. If you are skiing and not snowboarding then I would go to Deer Valley. They limit the number of people on the mountain so it never gets too busy. Of course, you need to get there early to make sure you can get lift tickets. I don't recall if they sold out during Presidents week. but during Christmas they were selling out by 9:30. You can buy tickets starting around 3pm the day before. I lived in PC for a few years, but I'm not familar with the other two condo's that you listed.

Deer Valley, because the way the lifts are set up does seem to get crowded though. The other two resorts do too but the way the Canyons is layed out it makes it easier to find a less crowded run. Last year a few days after christmas i was able to find a run that i saw a total of 8 different people on during the entire morning. Thats just if you find the runs that the tourists cant find.
