I'm from Hawaii and picked up this passion for skiing after trying it out for the first time in March of this year. I'm planning on bringing the family to Brian Head Resort in December to take some lessons and hopefully progress outta beginner mode...all these wedge turns doesn't really get my heart pumping.
As you can imagine, being from Hawaii, I'm a total noob when it comes to driving in the snow. I've been checking out the UDOT webcams for road conditions along SR143 leading to BH. My question is: If the SR143 is totally covered with snow but I'm able to see faint tire tracks in the snow, would it be prudent to continue driving towards BH? I'm planning on renting a van and purchasing some snow cables for the front wheels.
In closing, I'd just like to thank all of the contributors to this site. You've been immensely helpful to me in proper techniques, resort & gear selection. I also find it very refreshing to find a forum where ppl are not flaming each other every other post.
