Just got back from 3rd trip to Park City in the month of December. The recent snows have covered up nearly all of the exposed spots on popular runs, the trees are shaping up and I'd expect many of the roped-off glades to open after another good storm or two, and the upper elevation sections are still soft and fluffy in areas shaded from heavy sun exposure. Ninety-nine-90 at Canyons is bumped up, but the soft snow makes it fun, even for non-bump-doggers like me. :)
Tip: Stay off the middles of the runs soon after New Years, high winds have uncovered slick ice patches. The next storms will hopefully lend some more coverage, and if temps stay low, there won't be too much thaw-freeze effect. If you have family members or friends who aren't strong skiers, the ice can get pretty scary, so keep that in mind. While skiing with my kids, I stopped to help a few skiers each day who were struggling on the ice and miserable. My kids were fine, but if I'd taken my wife (who skis cautiously) on some of those icy runs, I might've ended up sleeping with the dog. :D
Wishing you all a Healthy and Happy New Year, and hope we get to meet up and ski this season!
Here's me and the little guy skiing together yesterday on New Year's Day at Park City. It was -10 degrees in the morning and stayed very cold all day, plus the wind kicked up huge and you could feel it in your bones on the lifts! But we still had a great time. Super grateful for the time we get playing together like big brother and little brother.
