Taxes paid. Where to ski mid-April out west?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I really want to hop a plane nest week (April 15-18). Where's the best skiing? Summit County? Park City? Tahoe?

What type of terrain are you looking for?

Loveland is great till closing day. Everything should be open except the terrain over by Chair 8. Good stuff up on The Ridge.

I can't speak for Park City or Tahoe.

I thought I read that someone just had a foot or more fresh snow. Alta - Snowbird, I think. It was here or TGR.

At least I was there when it was waist deep in the first week of Feb.

Came back from Tahoe on 2 April, and wouldn't recommend it - like bulletproof Ice Coast condition. Hopefully it'll make for nice spring conditions, but that's only a hope.

Came back today from Utah - Holy $h#t - It wouldn't stop dumping - 17 inches, 20 inches - every other day it just dumped. That's the good news - the bad news is that the Park City areas close this weekend, and Alta, Snowbasin etc. close next weekend. Snowbird will be open for a while, but the temps start going straight up this weekend (looking at 70's in SLC on Sunday)

I'm doing the WB trip again in two weeks - usually late season it's excellent.

LL was pretty insane today. Utah looks pretty crazy lately also. Makes little difference because it's gonna warm up this week and turn to a sweet corn cycle I think. I would personally go to Utah.

I usually keep up with SLC, summit county and tahoe snow reports each ski season.

i wouldn't recommend tahoe just because they havent gotten snow in a while, probably mostly hard packed.
SLC and summit county and been getting storms all week and some summit county places got over 2 feet this week.
i'd go with slc or summit county, but check your closing dates; park city closes the 13th.

if its close to above freezing and sunny, or warm then you will have good sking anywhere the lifts are running. Corn and slush rock to ski on.

Araphoe Basin

Ski the Legend ... Arapahoe Basin in Summit County will be good!

Please keep in mind that Keystone and Copper Mountain close on the 13th. Breck, A-Basin and Loveland will be open.
