post #301 of 309

Snowbird and Alta are your only 2 options left - according to the wasatchsnowforecast 8-16' is possible this weekend with most coming saturday so i would expect a decent crowd at both resorts but I'd say definitely worth bringing your gear for one last hurrah

Sounds like powder skiing in LCC is a possibility for the closing weekend of Alta.  Snow showers starting today and in full gear Sat-Sun, April 25-26.  Wonder how many folks will be skiing the Sugarloaf side as backcountry, assuming the lift stays closed as expected.

Hopefully they left the ropes up and can open the lift if they want. I was hoping they might open Supreme as a surprise during the last storm, but then I remembered them taking ropelines down on Sunday. Sugarloaf doesn't have nearly as many ropelines as Supreme, and with the terrain acceesable anyways, who knows?

They won't run Sugarloaf, but they often groom a run off that side anyway.  With a foot of new it could be quite nice.

I haven't skied it in a couple of weeks, but reports are that it isn't:

 

Mineral Basin last day was Sunday.

 

Peruvian side closed for construction a week ago.

 

A portion of Bass Highway from Gad Valley to Tram is melted off.

 

So, only real choice is Little Cloud if you don't want to take off your skis and walk. Last day is May 10.

Little Cloud is the only thing open now. Mineral was getting pretty rough. Skiing off Road to Provo was good, but your skis took a bit of a beating getting there. If they can manage to push enough snow up there to keep it open, it will probably be good next week. Regulator was decent, but again, the top was pretty rough. Skiing is good in places but you are definitely going to get some rocks. I got a core shot somewhere without knowing it.
