Christmas and New Years in the Watsach area

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Heading to Utah for the holidays. Skiing the Park City resorts and Alta, Solitude, and Snowbird. With the current conditions and the lack of any big storms in the upcoming week what's the likely hood that most resorts will be open 100%

For Alta/bird and Solitude I'll guess 0%. Not sure about Park city

That's what I figured. Just looking for some positive insight. Over the last few years what is the average percentage of runs that Re open that time of the year

It's looking pretty grim at the moment, I am in the same boat as you.

 

Most of the forecast models are not showing any storms coming through the area in the next week or so, they all seem to be splitting either south or north of the Wasatch. Thankfully, I have until the 21st to cancel.

The reports I am seeing call for a good chance of stormy activity mid month around Dec 13th and into Xmas, Obviously a bit speculative this far out. But with the 30" base now, good things could happen still and really be game changers into the later part of December. Im headed to Solitude on the 18th - 23rd and I feel pretty good about my chances of having some powder days and decent coverage. But this trip for me was about checking out a place Ive never been to and getting some good warm-up as well as getting my two girls some lessons in a non-crowded environment.

I'm leaving town on the 20th, it'll surely snow like mad till I get back after New Years.

I was in Park City at the end of March last year. But haven't been there that early in the season. Does anyone know if the 9990 at the Cantons and Mineral Basin at Snowbird are usually open by the end of December?
