Sorry man didn't see this. For the most part the Oquirrh are a much further drive than the Wasatch. There is some super steep chutes that are supposed to be pretty fun. I did the twin chutes on Deseret Peak last year and hoping to hit them in winter conditions this year.

You are correct though that the mountains don't get the snowfall the Wasatch does. The approaches are generally longer as well since the road that drives through the Oquirrhs is closed during winter. Compared to the Wasatch where it takes 45 minutes the skin to the top of Cardiac for nearly 2K vert. Do you split or anything though?
