lil.polishSnow has been minimal on the Wasatch this season. Brighton has the most base (I think) and conditions for powder are nonexistent in-bounds there. Can't speak for Alta personally, but you're not going to be skiing much "deep snow" unless the weather suddenly flips and we get a few feet. This is a park/street season no doubt.
SteezySmith57So do I pack my 3.0s and hit Alta or the vishnus and go to Brighton
K-Dot.Brightons park is going off lately but Alta still has been fun with the low tide. Still a safer bet to go to brighton though
FawndzI ski at snowbird which gets a similar snow fall as Alta, seasons been pretty bad, I don’t think you will be finding much powder in bounds at Snowbird or Alta, probably a safer bet to go to a more park oriented resort like Brighton if you enjoy skiing park. Have fun though!
SteezySmith57Yeah. I might just take my 3.0s and charge around Alta anyway just to enjoy a mountain... I ski park all the time here in Wisconsin so a change of scenery is nice
NYagerNah bring rock skis. It’s fun out here but you will get coreshots.
DeebieSkeebieslow tide and the wasatch has been getting skunked by shit either going north or south. snows still holding on barely, though. pretty sharky still off the runs so dont be surprised if you wind up with a few base dingers or two.
definitely not as good as last season, probably wont be, but there is still so much season left. no need to hit the panic button yet. just come out and enjoy yourself, its still a ski trip.
out of curiousity, when did you come out last season? the wasatch back (PC/Canyons/Deer Valley) lucked out far too many times with the SW flow and in some storms and got pummeled. I think we got away in the month of january with like 187" in like 4 weeks almost? utah typically gets most of our snow during the 2nd half of winter/spring.
