I’ll be making the drive up. Have some friends from SLC and Twin Falls heading in for it too. I always seem to coax a few of them to head to the game with me whenever the Bulls are on this coast.
Edit: To add SLC is gorgeous, you’ll be a little far for Zion(which I hit once every few months from Vegas) but you have Arches and a ton of other beautiful parks right outside of the city. The Mormon temple there is gorgeous, and they have a surprisingly good brewery scene. Not much between Provo and just south of SLC but it’s not barren either and you’ll be able to find any type of hotel for the most part.
