Is April Alta's best month?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Looks that way the past 3 years.  Never skied out there so late but I bet it's pretty uncrowded to boot.  East Coast spring break is mid April, which could work out nicely. 

 

I'm sure the last things locals want is Alta/Snowbird discovered in April by the masses.

 

Is this a glitch or is April usually so epic?

Snowbird broke the all time total snowfall record yesterday reaching 693" so far.

 

Guess what there's more snow in the forecast starting Thur. night.

 

Is it crowded?

 

Yes it can be on powder days. They re-opened the Peruvian Express chair yesterday to handle the crowds.

 

Alta is re-opening for the weekend & then closing for the season.

You dog!  Friday looks like one of the best days in one of the best seasons.  Hopefully you're staying up in the canyon in case they close the road. Do you still live in NC?

I do and have a little business to take care of in the AM - fingers crossed

Edit - Friday PM was good, I assume Sat AM was better (unfortunately was on the fast, aluminum bus east).

I love that place.
