I'll be in Salt Lake City for business and thought I would be able to get some late season action next weekend (maybe this Tuesday too). It looks like Snowbird is open with a couple of lifts for another couple of weeks. I'll go as long as it is open, but I was wondering if there were any tips such as when to start a day.
Does the snow start off soft and get softer or is this year more boilerplate in the morning and breaking up a couple of hours later? So should I go for the opening or relax and wait a bit?
What terrain should I expect on the two lifts that are open? Little Cloud, Mineral Basin Express, Aerial Tram according to the Snowbird Spring Schedule.
I assume the tram just takes me up to the other two. I skied Snowbird back in 79 so my memory of it is a little (no make that a lot) hazy.
Any tips for parking / buying tickets so I don't waste any time would also be much appreciated.
I spent the early season getting my boots in order, now I just want to give the Prophet 98's I recently bought a try before giving up for the year.
