We're def spoiled after last season, but even still... going off the groomers is suicide right now if you like your skis. There's just enough snow to make it look ok, but a few turns in and the hidden teeth (esp in the Cottonwoods) reveal themselves in a very unforgiving way. I've taken three coreshots (very small, mercifully) in the past month (2 at Alta, 1 at Bird) and that was going veeeery slow and really trying to be careful. Just sticking to groomers until I know it's safe at this point.
That said, I've seen videos from the east where I used to ski and I can see how anyone coming from that thinks Utah is epic right now. It's all about perspective, I just happened to move out here last year during nuclear winter and lost mine quickly.
