As I said in my previous post, I CAN do something about it. I still have plenty of time to change my plans with nothing more than a $100 plane ticket fee. That's what I'm trying to decide on. I'd rather stay here and drive up to Bohemia than spend the time and money to fly to Utah and ride in marginal conditions.

Obviously there's a lot of unpredictability, and things can change quickly. But, if I know that it's getting a bit slushy at the bottom now, and the 10-day report shows sun and 40deg every day, then I know that I need the weather to turn around pretty drastically in order to get even decent conditions.

Not asking for someone to tell me what the weather is going to be like in 2 weeks or tell me how to plan my vacation. But I have a choice to make, and the limited information on the various weather/snow conditions sites can be a bit vague, especially when the conditions are marginal.

Obviously snow conditions will vary across the mountain, but that could mean a bit of ice here and there, or bare spots and slush on half the mountain, or anything in between.

Glad you guys got some snow. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I love how, even in internet lingo, it is very obvious when we have our grumpy pants on. I wear mine very well, too.

You should be fine with SLC. Pay attention to the boards, here. While PC may be getting shit, other resorts in the SLC area are getting pretty good snowfall. For good pow focus on (as it has been said) Brighton, Solitude, or Snowbird. The Cottonwood resorts get much better snow than the resorts in the Park City area. Avoid focusing your energy on Park City (though it does have 110 of 107 trails open?????)

Tourist Colorado (Northern) isn't getting shit, this year so don't head there. Tahoe area, in-general isn't doing too well, either, but Kirkwood (about 40 mins south of South Lake Tahoe towards Mammoth) has been doing well with a near-weekly cycle of storms that brings in 1-2 feet per week. Kirkwood or Mammoth would be the only option to change, if I was you. (It sounds like your trip to Targhee might be a decent option, though one hell of a drive.)

Again the Colorado isn't getting shit is a completely untrue comment. Telluride, Crested Butte, Silverton, Wolf Creek are all having rocking seasons. Better than most anywhere except Cali. It's the Colorado Northern rockies that are sucking. So Vail, Summit County, Witnerpark, and such are not great. They have great conditions for mid November, for mid Feb, not so much...
