What kind of conditions can I expect at Alta with a moderate snow season around mid-December? My hopes aren't high, but I am going that weekend regardless.

There are no guarantees on Dec. 15, but very few if any other areas could boast any better record than Alta. In the past 16 seasons Alta has been 90+% open on Dec. 15 in half. The worst quarter of seasons Alta has been 40-60% open. Looking at snowfall records, in only 2 of the past 45 years would conditions have have marginal with very little open on Dec. 15.
