The Wasatch Snow Forecast has us getting snow end of the week Wasatch Snow Forecast so you may find it better than you think.

Yeah lot's of snow coming down Thursday night and all day Friday.

1-2 feet predicted at Salt Lake resorts and probably a little over a foot at Park City resorts. Should be a great weekend, if you're looking for powder, I'd skip Park City and head to Solitude or Brighton, you can usually find powder days after a storm but in Park City it's all tracked out the day of.

Flights are hard to predict, there is a possible chance of lake effect snow coming of the great salt lake which heads right over the salt lake airport, won't know till it happens though...

Looks like the storm hit the valley and up towards Brigham City more than the Cottonwoods. Powder Mountain definitely has the goods right now.

Pow Mow is usually pretty good with the lifts and has gotten more snow so far with this storm. It's been weird because it primarily hung out in the valley and then went north. If you're going to stay in the Cottonwoods Solitude and Brighton will be better lift line wise than Alta/Snowbird.

One of the weirdest storms I have ever seen, more snow in the city than the mountains!

Still plenty of powder to go around at Brighton and Solitude, both had about a foot or so since last night, it was very windy today though so a lot of the fresh snow had blown around and became pretty windpacked.

It depends what you like to ride on choosing Brighton vs Solitude....
