What should I except if I decide on an early april trip to SLC? I see the base is some of the deepest in the country.

What are you looking for?  What region do you usually ski in?  What type of terrain?

 

I was in SLC in late Jan and early Feb.  Had a good time even without deep coverage.  I stayed a few days longer to catch a storm that added enough for powder turns if you knew where to look for them.  Helped a lot that I and my ski buddy have skied Alta/Snowbird in April regularly in the last 6-7 years.  So we know where to go when day time temps go into the 40s.

My home skiing area is the Maryland / PA. I normally make 1 trip a year out to PNW for skiing and one or 2 a year to NH/VT.

 

I'm excepting spring conditions but just trying to get a better read on it.

I would expect you'll be skiing spring conditions in the cottonwoods.  I wouldn't plan on anything more than that.

Have you noticed the ongoing regional thread for Utah?

If you decide to head to LCC, I'll be there in early April.  Meeting up with friends for our annual late season get together.  I plan to have fun, regardless of how much in snows in the next few weeks.  The funny part being that I skied fresh powder at Massanutten last weekend.  And lots of deep powder in the trees in VT a few days before that.

Sweet. I think it should be good. I'm just looking for some late season stoke and I'm sure I'll be happy on piste or off. 

 

I'm mostly just looking for some good skiing (of any type) and some pretty mountains to enjoy looking at.

Have you found the EpicSki Unofficial Guides for Alta and Snowbird?  Can click on Unofficial Guides on the top menu.

 

As for lift tickets, while you can use Liftopia or the Superpass, usually it's just as good to buy a discounted lift ticket at the base of BCC or any of the ski shops or grocery stores that sell them.  The advantage of the Superpass is that you can use it as a public transport pass if needed.
