In Winter, Hotel Bargains in Northern Climes

By Elaine Glusac, The New York Times — With the snowbird migration underway, warm-weather deals can be hard to find. But winter is a good time to seek a bargain in cities, especially cities where the cold weather may be bleak. But what’s a little rain (or snow) to a museum-goer?

Salt Lake City is day-trip distance from four ski resorts. Many hotels are offering special rates beginning at $118 a night downtown. The Super Pass, which starts at $82 a day with a three-day minimum, offers ski access to Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude resorts and 20 to 40 percent off ski rentals. It also includes rides on the light rail line and ski buses to and from the resorts.
