2012 Snow Predictions??

Has anyone seen any snow predictions yet? I'm trying to decide between Park City and Steamboat in late January. I'm guessing Steamboat is the safer bet as far as snow. But I've been there. Never been to Park City.

All you need to know about Park Shitty is that it's flat as fuck, small, and flatter than flat.

Lot's of places in Utah worth the trip, Park City is not high on my list either.

Brighton, Solitude, Snobasin, Powder Mountain, and Snowbird are all worth a visit.

Which would be your top pick? And how would it compare to the big CO resorts? I usually stick to NM and CO, but a friend is flying in from the east coast and wants to try something in Utah.

If you spilled water on the slope, it would just sit there.

I don't even need to bother answering this since KC already did. Unless you are all about park I wouldn't bother with the PC resorts. They have lower snowfall and flat terrain, why bother?

HA!! Utah has to be one of the best places to go in the lower 48. If you have to ask if utah is worth it prepare to shit yourself when you get there...i know I did.

Brighton/Snowbasin/powder mountain...I went to powder last winter...it was simply beautiful. One of thoes trips you cant even describe how great it was. The night i got there the resort got a 22" dump over night, ontop of the almost 2ft in the previous 3 days. Probably the best snow i have ever ridden on, light champagne pow (of course thats how all of utah is). You know its great when you are making your turns in the untracked pow and on the otherside of the glade you hear the "cheers" and "WOOHOOs" from another rider having the time of their life, of course I had plenty of those cheers and woohoos too.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Are you serious? It's hard to find a place better than Utah.

Now, Park City ain't that great. More touristy than anything. Lot's of park though. Also, Park City doesn't get as much snow as Cottonwood Canyons, which are just south, and get some of the most snow in the continental united states. You have Brighton, Snowbird, Solitude and Alta.

The great thing about Utah, particularly Salt Lake City, is that you have a ton of resorts within 30 minute to choose from. Seven to be exact, you have The Canyons, Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley, Brighton, Solitude, Snowbird and Alta. Then two more, Snow Basin and Powder Mountain about another 30 minutes away.

Brighton and Snowbird are my two favorite. Solitude is great as well.
