I'm planning on skiing *somewhere* for the week of Feb 15th. Tahoe (Kirkwood) is my home ski area and I was just there for the nice mini-dump last weekend. I also have reservations to be in SLC for just over a week starting Sunday, Feb 15th. I've never been there before, and have an Epic Pass, but would plan on skiing where ever conditions were best (preferably with some time at other resorts in any case). I'll also be solo, so no deep trees or anything, sadly.
Me: High Intermediate: slow but fine on everything off chair 6 at Kirkwood/most blacks, enjoying practicing bumps, really like more natural areas as opposed to just big open pistes (though those are fun, too). Groomers are fine if they're interesting, but aren't my focus. I also like skiing during the week when things are mostly empty.
Is there enough snow in the SLC area for me to have fun as a first time visitor, or should I wait until the visit will be epic and just stick to the likely poor conditions in Kirkwood/Tahoe (cheaper, known quantity) for this week?
