a. Snowbird
b. Brighton
c. The Canyons
d. Solitude
e. Powder Mtn.
f. Brian Head

Oh yeah, and which one has the best "scenery" like dis...[;)]

Well I'm not a local, but I spend a little time there each season, so here's my .02 anyway:

2-Solitude, Snowbird
3-Powder Mountain, Park City

I've never been to Brian Head so I can't comment.

As far as nightlife you should go to BC or Colorado or anywhere but Utah for that matter (It's not that bad and I know the true locals will say different). Park City is pretty good, but not too close. Not much in BCC. Most of the people I know in SLC go to the Bayou as their bar of choice, or a kick ass mexican place that makes awesome marg.'s that I can't remember the name of, or most often have me bring cheap booze from CO and just do house parties.

I've been to Alta, Snowbird, and the Canyons...

I rank:

1. Alta (skiing only though) I want to go back but I board now...
2. Snowbird
3. The Canyons

Park City will most likely have the best "scenery"

Best scenery? Park city doesn't really have all that good of scenery, they have a badass park though
