Squaw or Park City 4/2-4/5
 
Hey Folks,

Have a business trip that brings me to Vegas and San Diego in early April. I have 3 days in between the two meetings and would like to hit something out west. These are 2 easy options. Any idea which may typically have the better conditions 1st week of April?

Thanks!

Squaw is in tahoe, there is no snow in tahoe. The sierras are in a drought state that is extremely bad. Do not go to tahoe.

Tahoe is notorious for heavy late spring (read: March/April) storms. It's happened the past few years too, even with the slow starts.

Just because there's no snow now, doesn't mean there's no snow in April. I'd be willing to bet conditions in Tahoe in April are better than they are in Utah.

But ya, as of right now, Tahoe is struggling.

I really hope you're right bro.

Looking like Park City may be more predictable snow. Jackson Hole is tempting but I hear snow is predictably gone by then. Big Sky MT could also be an option although longer flights.

Thoughts?

Thx again!

I wouldn't necessarily endorse Park City, but the SLC area (Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude) are your best shot. Utah has always done me just fine in April, much better than Tahoe. It might not be the "Greatest Snow on Earth" come April, but it is still pretty friggin tasty. The lake fuels frequent snows. Considering your narrow travel window, the access to the SLC airport is less than a 40 minute drive. Squaw is a bit more from RNO, but not too much.

March, yes.....April, not so much. It didn't happen last year and April was Meh in 2012, and even in the big 2011 year April was all 3-5 inch snowfalls.

Historically speaking, that is a silly bet. Utah does much better than Tahoe in April.
