Passing through SLC, where to ski?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi gang, me and my hub are going to be passing through SLC this weekend, with 1-2 days to ski. We're headed to St. George (don't ask). I'm looking to SLC locals for advice as to where's the best snow.

I'd like to ski some areas never visited before--I have visited Alta, Brighton, Deer Valley, Snowbasin, and Snowbird. How are the areas south of SLC? I remember seeing a great segment on Brianhead in a long-ago Warren Miller movie that made me want to ski there.

Nolo,

FYI, Brianhead is having a very bad snow year (less than 50% of normal, I think). If you're looking for some thing new to try, I'd say given it's presidents weekend, try Solitude. If you wanted to do a day at Alta I'm sure Laure would be up for skiing with you too(two?) I would, but I'm working. Shoot me a PM if you're intrested.

We've been in a slight dry spell but should have some new snow Wed.

If we get to ski with Laure, then Alta it is!!!!

I will send a PM this evening. We got 7" at Bridger overnight and it's still snowing!

Sounds like you have your Salt lake City skiing down. Now for the southern Utah area of Brianhead. It is small very little vert and other then a few places that offer some interesting skiing not all that impressive. On the other hand If it is a bluebird day, the views just might be worth the price of the lift ticket.

Nolo - I hope you're bringing your mountain bike - some of the best riding in the whole wide world is right outside of St. George, and with as dry as it's been it should be in great shape.

Unfortunately, we won't have room for the bikes unless we rent a UHaul. We're going to take some lessons and play a little golf this time.

For a quaint skiing experience, try Beaver Mountain, Highway 89. It's one of those small ski areas that rock! Well, not rock so much as . . . let's see, it's not disco certainly,. . . but maybe a boogie. . . .although that's not quite right either.

Let's just say that it's a toe-tappin' area, especially with the dump we are getting right now.

If you're passing through on Saturday, I'd be glad to show you around. If you don't mind a bit of a "skate and pole," I can guarantee some powder.

Personally, I prefer snow to rock.
And they usually get more snow in the two cottonwood canyons.
