It started snowing today and they are calling for 6 to 8 inches by Wed. morning
lots of things to factor into that question such as degree of slope, evenness of terrain etc.
out here we can generally open with about 30 inches at brighton, but at snowbird in the next canyon over they tend to need a little more because its steeper and has more rugged terrain.
