Utah - late March weather

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about going to SLC for a long weekend March 23-25 and would like some opinions from those in the know about what kind of conditions I can expect. I am especially interested in what to expect at Snowbasin. Obviously LCC and BCC should be fine and I know that currently the conditions are very good, but typically what should I expect for four weeks from now (especially since the snowpack is lower than it typically is this time of year)?

Stick to high elevation, North facing resorts (i.e. Snowbird, Alta, Brighton & Solitude). All others will be spring skiing by then. Snowbasin is one of the worst; East facing & low base (6,400').

So are you saying that Snowbasin probably isn't worth a day at that time? Of the places I've been, that is my favorite and I am really wanting to ski there on one of the days of my trip.

Depends. If there is fresh snow, or cold temps that week, go. Otherwise the snow is preserved far better in the Cottonwoods. You won't believe the difference in quality.

Anywhere out West, especially in late March, it is a toss-up between getting a good cold storm, and warm high pressure.

Last year I was out there Mar. 25-Apr 1 and we got dumped on everyday. The year before that we went the week earlier and it was the most incrediable skiing I have ever done.

The end of March has always been great skiing for me lately, but it isn't always good.
