Price Reduced

We switched from American Airlines to Southwest Airlines and got a better price, better flight times, and better baggage terms.   

For everyone flying with us your trip is now $42 cheaper.  See new prices below. 

 Package Cost
 Standard  $1311
 Senior Pass (64+)  $1260
 Single Occupancy  $1555
 No Air Travel  $679
 No Ski Pass  $919

Note: Because Southwest is more punitive regarding cancellations and requires a much earlier hold  on seats, trip leaders have retained a portion of the savings in case the trip does not fill and we need to pay cancelled flyer penalties.  Let's fill this trip and not pay penalties!

Non-Skier Activities

What are People Saying?

Quite a few people are saying;

Spring is a fun time to ski especially in a sunny place like Utah. 

But, others ask us questions... two main questions.

Aren't you done with skiing by the end of March? 

Well, no, not when it’s some of the best skiing there is.  Warmer, usually sunnier, days means not only nicer temps, but less cold weather gear to muscle around! 

Plus, there's more daylight and more hours of lift operation.

There's less congestion on the slopes and at the lifts because a lot of skiers are thinking like this question; that it’s time to move onto other things.  

Perhaps.  Think about all the things you can do back home in the season Michigan is entering at this time--  Mud Season! 

Hmmm.

What about the snow? How good?  How wet? 

Generally the snow stays Winter blue near the top through morning.  South facing slopes soften under the sun in the afternoon.  Both Snowbasin and Powder Mountain divide their mountains into top half and bottom half lifts and if you stay on the top-half lifts the snow stays pretty dry.

Closer to the mountain's base, groomed snow freezes overnight and melts under the sun during the day.  Bottom half runs will be a mixture of wet in the sun and drier snow in the shade.

Cross-Country trails are generally in the bottom half zone, but with more trees that help protect the snow from too much sun.  Off trail the snow is frequently powdery under a crust of refreezing snow.

March in Utah is the time of year when the snow base is greatest and if we see a typical Spring, quick-passing storms will roll through about every 3 days leaving a steady supply of fresh powder.
