Thanks everyone for your help so far--I've learned so much from reading your posts. We'll be in town during the holidays and will have four ski days. Deer Valley sounds like the perfect resort for me-- I am a cautious skier, primarily greens (hoping to build confidence and move to blues on this trip), and I like the idea of no snowboarders. My husband is an intermediate skier (blues).
Would it be unusual to ski all 4 days at DV? Will we get bored? I feel like we "should" try at least one of the other resorts, but based on the terrain maps it appears there is very little beginner terrain at Canyons, and even less at PCMR. I'm not talking about the bunny slope/teaching hill, but actual green (or very easy blue) runs.
I'm also planning to do two days of ski school--if we do try a different mountain (probably Canyons), would it be better to do both days of ski school at DV, or 1 at DV/1 at Canyons? Canyons ski school is about half the price, but I know DV ski school is supposed to be wonderful.
We are not staying at any of the resorts, so location isn't a factor, although I like the convenience of storing our skis at DV all week if we decide to ski there exclusively. Thanks for any advice you have!
