Utah in early December

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of doing an early ski trip to Utah the first week in December. Any local knowledge as to what to expect that early in the season. Thanks Steve

Expecting lots of snow (not that you are) in early December is expecting a lot, no matter where you're going to be. Personally, I've had some pretty darn good coverage there for that early, and I've had not a whole lot, which should not be a surprise.
Best bet is LCC, of course.

I-CHING say: no telling.

Hope ya get pounded though.

edit: this

Actual locals will chime in with more experience. I've been there three of the past four Decembers, including one first week of the month.

It's alway best to wait until the last minute in December. But considering you may have plan ahead, SLC is a fairly good bet.
You can always drive to Grand Targhee if you have too. I generally think Colorado's a little better early season bet. Higher elevation, more snowmaking and less rocky terrain.
Alta/Snowbird need about a 70" base to start getting good,
Aspen can be good with less than 30".

Don't go to Utah. Utah sucks. Go to Colorado. It is better.

This past season, CO would have been a better bet. They had some serious early season dumps, while UT had an average if not subpar season.

There's just no tellin'!
