Park City Conditions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi! My son and I are headed out to Park City from March 13-19. I have been following the weather (nws) and it looks like it is going to be in the high 50's for the bulk of our stay. I have not skied in Utah, so I am unsure of what to expect. Should I be worried??

As I'm sure others would say, I would not buy lift tickets fro PC areas and drive to Cottonwood Canyon areas which are higher and have bigger bases. Forecast for next Sunday in PC is mid 60's. That is a bit warm.

Welcome to EpicSki!  I've been skiing at Alta in April for a number of years.  When temps are in the 50s, not much fun lower down after lunch.  So it depends on what type of terrain you can handle.  The higher elevation for Alta/Snowbird makes it easier to find fun.

 

This is the website I use to follow Wasatch weather:

Can also follow the regional thread:

My info is 2+ weeks old, but conditions were very mediocre when I skied PC and The Canyons around Feb 20.  They've had a very mild and dry winter overall, not as bad as Tahoe, but very subpar for Utah.  They had a good storm about 5 or 6 days ago, but it's mild again.  They (PC and Canyons) had a lot of groomer runs open, just very thin off-piste.  The mild temps could be your friend turning the hardpack into fun spring conditions. Purely anecdotal, but I thought The Canyons was in better shape than PC.  Mixing it up and daytripping over to Alta/Bird for part of your stay might get you some better snow as Maui Steve suggests.

Just got back Monday from 6 days in Park City. PC, BCC & LCC got 15-20 inches 8-10 days ago and the skiing in BCC and LCC was great Wedensday-Saturday. Skied Deer Valley Sunday and The Canyons Monday and the conditions were not good. Got a very nice core shot on the 2nd to the last run. Solitude, Alta and Snowbird were all better.

This is great info. Thanks to all who replied. Not the best year, but I can't wait nonetheless.

Canyons was bulletproof yesterday am then softened up nicely as temps rose in the pm. Heavy Metal off Iron Man was money about 2 pm and you could spray everywhere off Condor at the end of day. I suspect they got rain today as even Alta was marginal ( but fun).
