Slc 3/16-3/20

Heading up there for 4 days on the slopes. Any recommendations on resorts / lift tickets / things to do (especially St Paddys)? Only resort planned right now is Snowbird, looking to stay away from PC. Thanks!

Utah Avalanche Center for discount lift tickets, or canyon sports has them pretty cheap as well.

You are coming out at a great time it looks like, Tahoe is going to get pounded then that storms is rolling right over Salt Lake City.

I personally would hit big cottonwood on Friday or Saturday, head north to Ogden on Sunday, and hit little cottonwood on Monday and/or Tuesday.

I would do it like this for a perfect trip.

Friday 3/16 - Brighton Resort, Big Cottonwood Canyon

Saturday 3/17 - Solitude Mountain Resort, Big Cottonwood Canyon

Sunday 3/18 - Powder Mountain Resort, Eden, UT

Monday 3/19 - Snowbird, Little Cottonwood Canyon

Tuesday 3/20 - Canyons, Park City, UT / Snowbird, Litte Cottonwood Canyon


Takes you to 4 possibly 5 incredible resorts that all offer something different. I rarely recommend someone ride in Park City when they come out here, but it would be fun to experience all 3 of Utah's major hitters.

Also, these are laid out in order, by day, so you will get the most powder (if available) with the least amount of crowds so you can get the most runs in. Do not, I repeat do NOT go to snowbird on the weekend. It's miserable riding up in the tram with a million people killing each other for fresh tracks, which are gone by the time you get back on the lift. Snowbird is a great resort, but it's even better on a weekday.

Of course, I would follow the storms. Utah's resorts are VERY close together, yet can receive quite different accumulation totals. Brighton/Solitude/Snowbird usually get the most snow, Powder Mountain next, then little ole' park city.


Check Wasatch Snow Forecast for weather, and SkiUtah.com for snow totals, and a cool map http://i.imgur.com/Tnx8w.jpg

Have fun

Decision for the last day

Alright so we have hit up Solitude first, and Snowbird for the last two days. The Bird today was awesome. Tree runs out the ying yang in knee deep snow.

Were sitting here tonight trying to decide where to hit up for the last day. Looks like things are narrowed down to Brighton, Canyons, or Snowbird again. Looking for great tree runs, maybe a good bowl or two and a variety of things to do for the beginner that is with us. Any help would be great!!!
