Utah Avalanche Center is good for discount lift tickets, also goes to a great cause - Utah Avalanche Center | Backcountry.com
Or you can pick them up in person at CanyonSports as well, which is a little ski shop in downtown SLC.
Check - Wasatch Snow Forecast
for detailed weather updates.
We've had a great December here in Utah, tons of snow, January has been kind of dry though. Looks like snow might pick back up towards the end of January into February. February and March are usually
our best months for snowfall.
Pretty much anywhere you go at Snowbird is killer on a pow day. Snowbird can tend to get very crowded though, so snow will get tracked out fairly quick. Make sure to hit snowbird EARLY and on a weekday if possible.
Solitude is usually empty, if Honeycomb Canyon is open, hit that for sure - some of the best terrain in-bounds in the Cottonwoods. You can find fresh powder weeks after a storm as Solitude as well. I pretty much only use two chair lifts at Solitude. Their SUMMIT chair and POWDERHORN II chair.
Let me know if you have any questions or anything else
