Several of us are headed to Utah next week and, thanks to the very generous offer of some friends, will have the use of nice condo in Park City for our stay. We will have a car and will arrive SLC on Tues the 8th and leave the following Tues. While I've skied the SLC & PC resorts in the past, I've always arrived on the weekend and began the ski week on Mon. I’ve heard that the PC and LCC/BCC areas tend to get quite crowded on Sat & Sun, so my thought was to head to Snowbasin or Powder Mountain then. Good idea? Are there other alternatives that would be better? Or are my fears of long lift lines and crowded slopes on the weekend unfounded?
A related couple of questions. I know it's been fairly warm over the past couple of weeks with little new snow but from what I read here on Epic, it seems like the slopes in the Cottonwoods and even in PC have held up reasonably well. Is that still the case? What about places like Snowbasin and Pow Mow that are at lower elevation? The forecast seems to indicate a reasonable potential for a change to the Feb ridging pattern which could mean some storms for the second week of March, so I'm crossing my fingers.
