if you are lucky you will get a power day while here in Utah. Keep in mind at most resorts it will be tracked out by 1pm. Still The snow will be soft and we never get ice like the east coast even if it has not snowed in weeks. PCMR can be a hard mountain to get around. It is made up of several ridge lines and Jupiter peak. A lot of people seem to get stuck in one area of the mountain and miss some of the best stuff. Study the trail map, There are also mountain host that will be happy to direct you around the mountain. since you board, the Terrain Parks are some of the best in the country. You may also want to go over to the Canyons for a day or two. again it is hard to navigate. To get to Snowbird Lewis Brothers runs a shuttle over to the Little Cottonwood Canyon it will cost about $70 that includes a lift ticket.
