Just got back from Utah an update on Powder and Snowbasin.
Got dumped on right before we got there, skied it monday. On Sunday they said they had the biggest crowd ever there, due to some road closures down south and the majority of snow falling up north (along with the fact that there hasn't been many storms like that this year). Place was tracked out! There was barely any snow that didn't have tracks one day after the storm. Found a little off the John Paul side, if you head up the tram and then head past the women's downhill start. Disclaimer: this can be some pretty advanced terrain! Anyways went back to it on Wednesday and the snow had softened a bit, but still no tracks to find. If you like to ski groomers, they were in great shape and plentiful. The resort as always was in great condition and the staff always friendly and accommodating. Love that place, just wish there was some powder left!
Went here on Tuesday. First time, hired an inbounds guide thanks to some great help from people here. $200 for six people for a cat ride up rain tree and a guide all day, can't beat it. We skied fresh powder all day! 2-3 feet of it in most places and we barely scratched the surface of the mountain. The lighting ridge area was basically untouched. Even though they haven't really gotten any snow since we were there, if you are looking for some powder, this is your spot. The small hike up to Cobabe canyon will definitely offer some fresh tracks and I am sure there are many more. I would certainly recommend the guide if its your first time.
