If you're rich, stay in a lodge at the resorts, spend oodles and cover
the costs of their lifts - google the resort's lodging service.

If you're of lessor stature (see comments in car thread, above) a rental
car and a room in any of a hundred reasonably priced motels in Sandy at
the mouth of the canyons will save you bucks usable for new skis or
other necessities and give you more options - google for lodging in Sandy.

BTW, many of those Motels will negotiate if they expect to have empty
rooms - call an upscale facility and tell them you're about to check
into lessor lodging but if they'll match the price you'll go with them
for the night - they usually bite except at the height of mob season.
