Have you noticed this thread about Utah conditions.  Just started a few days ago.

Talked to a couple who were at Park City a few days ago.  Travelers from Montreal who are in Utah for the first time.  They found the Park City slopes pretty empty during Sundance.  Don't think it was just because people are more interested in movies than skiing.

You can also check here for a general overview of weather in the Wasatch range:

http://www.wasatchsnowforecast.com/

 

The Wasatch Back areas (Park City/DV/Canyons) report about 95" of snow so far this season - this is about half of what the 4 areas on the windward side of the range (Alta/Bird, Brighton/Solitude) have received (Alta reports 191" for the season). There has not been any significant precipitation anywhere in the Wasatch since a storm on 12 Jan that dropped about 16" - 20."

 

From what I've read here on EpicSki, due to the reasonably large base, conditions on the western side including Snowbasin, have been decent, especially considering the lack of snow. I suspect that the back areas have not fared as well. PCMR and DV have quite a bit of snowmaking capacity however, so things may not be as bad as they could be.

 

There is some hope in the recent forecasts though.

 PCMR today: Snowing up top, sleet at base. Accumulation a couple inches by two p.m., good skiing higher, nasty cream on crust lower. If the snow keeps up, it will actually be pretty good tomorrow. Some of the blown in powder was really nice. Creamy & still light = hero snow.

Not sucking. More snow in the forecast. Deer Valley, Super Sunday. More champaign please.
