Smile which Salt Lake City resorts to hit up this week?

My family & friends and I are heading down to SLC this/next week. I heard the snow conditions have been variable depending on the individual resort. What's good for snowboarding around SLC at this point in the year, particularly with the way this winter has been?

Thanks!

Check out Brighton. I believe they have around a 68" base while Park City has a 53" base. I've been to SLC a bunch of times and my favorite mountains are Brighton and Solitude.

All the mountains are good in SLC (IMO). Some are more challenging than others. I think you'll enjoy wherever you go.

Have fun!

Ogden resorts(Powder Mountain and Snowbasin) are good as well as Brighton\Solitude.

I was up at Solitude this weekend, and if you're willing to work for it (particularly headwall forest and honeycomb), you can still find some powder stashes.

You won't find pow here. Way the weather is looking and inversion setting in heat will rise in the mountains. Conditions are going to be slushy and spring like hope you like park

Snowbasin had some melty/heavy powder this weekend but Solitude's powder, especially in the trees and in Honeycomb, was still relatively light and splendid.
