Storm coming into Utah tonight. I have a 2 wheel drive car. Am planning on going to LCC. where is best place to catch bus assuming I can't get up LCC with 2 wheel drive car. I will be drivning from downtown area. So was looking for one of the lots on way once i get off of I-215. Thanks for local info.

It is dumping pretty hard right now. ~5" in 2 hours and this doesn't look like just a valley storm.


My advice, get up early and check the LCC road conditions. Everywhere will be face shot city so you can't make the wrong call.

I'm planning to go up there tomorrow as well (assuming the road is open). Anyone else going to be there?

Do the buses actually fill up closer to the canyons on powder days?

Yes.  I try to get on the bus a stop or two earlier than the base of the canyon. I've seen busses that are full drive right by without stopping (what's the point if there's no room?) and I've been on full busses that have driven right by.  The Swamp lot (6200S) is a good choice for Alta/Bird.



This depends  on the day of course.  I caught the early bus up to Alta on New Year's day and the base of the canyon was fine - more than fine, actually, I was the only one there. On a powder day, everything will be mobbed.  I'd suggest the swamp lot.
