I've been fortunate enough to have been able to ski the LCC/BCC amd Wasatch Back areas now for three years in a row - with great conditions each time, even last season. The downside is to that is because the skiing was so good, I neglected to get up to Snowbasin (or Powder Mtn). Hope to remedy that this year but won't get there until early March and have a couple of questions for regulars.
With Snowbasin on the lee side of the range and slightly lower in elevation than the Wasatch Back areas, are conditions generally the same in March as at PCMR & DV? Or does Snowbasin's greater average snowfall generally provide for better conditions in March than at its southern Wasatch cousins?
I know that nearby lodging options are limited and am OK with staying in/near Ogden (I'll have a rental car). Any suggestions? Also, can I pick up discounted lift tickets at local ski shops in Ogden as I would for the SLC/PC ski areas? Any suggestions?
