SLC Resorts
 
Headed to SLC this weekend. Unfortunately, doesn't look like there's much snow... where's the best place to go in this situation between Snowbird, the Canyons, Solitude and Brighton? Do any of these places have better snowmaking coverage than others making more terrain available? Thanks!

Canyons is a waste of time, it location makes it least favorable on days without fresh snow.

Solitude and Snowbird are imo the best areas out there. Powder Mountain is great too but I reserve trips out there for fresh powder.

FWIW IMO if it is going to be strictly groomers go to Solitude especially on weekends.
Get discount lift tickets in town at one of the shops that sell them.

Brighton will probably have the most coverage

Take a trip down to moab and go climbing! I'd scratch the Canyons, too. It'll all be dicey, so it'll be a toss-up. Locals say Brighton. If you're a traveler/visitor, I suggest the Bird just to check it out.

Shhh. Don't tell anyone about Solitude.

Thanks for the responses guys. Love Utah and hit it up twice last year. Went to Canyons, Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton, but I got lucky and the conditions were awesome each time. I'll take the advice and avoid Canyons this time around.

Brighton has the most coverage\open right now followed by Solitude and then Snowbird.

Nothing is Wrong with the Canyons! The place just doesn't compare (IMHO)to Snowbird (I can find places to avoid crowds), Snowbasin, and maybe even Brighton. I was at the canyons on a less than perfect snow weekend so I just didn't have the best time. Others have pleased me much more.
