I would actually say Van (WB) has GREAT conditions, with another 20+ in the past couple of days. Going back again next week. Really, compared to SLC's conditions, no brainer.
I skiied in Utah the last 3 days and love Utah but I would agree with Shredheads suggestion on Seattle, Pacific Northwest.
When I left Snowbird yesterday, the entire moutain (yes the top as well) was completely slush. I can't imaging the icebowl that must be there today.
Also, when speaking of food, if you're a burger fan, In-n-Out is now in SLC. Try one (or more).
