I'm new here and registered to see if some locals could have some useful tips for me. I'm brazilian and will be heading to utah last week of Feb. I want to go skiing/snowboarding, but the prices of the lodging and mountain near salt lake city were a bit to steep for me, so I was looking at beaver mountain up north or brian head south.
Since I'll probably go to Vegas, Brian head would be ideally located. But I am worried about snow conditions at this time. My questions:
1 - Does it still snow at this time on Brian Head, or will I probably get artificial snow?
2 - Would I be better off north of salt lake city, would it increase my chances of getting good snow?
3 - I plan to spend a week in a mountain, how many days will I be able to ski with my gf - able as in having physical conditions?
(I did it once and I know you are all sore the next day... I'm imagining two days in a row would call for a day off)
4 - Any tips on other spots I could go skiing? I was looking for lodging at around $100/night on the mountain if possible, only place I found closest to that was Brian Head.
To be considered: Snow is awesome in itself for us who never see it, so if I could go to a place a bit more expensive or off mountain who had greater chance of having snow or better snow, I would most definitely consider it!
I called a few places, but I always get "Yes, we will have snow", so I figured I might get something more transparent from folks who know the region! All advice will be greatly appreaciated, I'm very unsure on what place to book at!
