Timing Your Ski Trip

When to Resort Ski

December to April are the prime ski months with March typically achieving the highest averages at 100 inches (watch the video).

Download the Ski Utah Snow Report app to keep tabs on resort opening and closing dates, ski bus routes, and, most importantly, daily snow totals and weather forecasting by OpenSnow’s Evan Thayer. True diehards can also sign up for Powder Alerts from their favorite resorts.

Best Time to Ski and Snowboard

When to Backcountry Ski

If you have your eye on skiing or snowboarding in Utah's backcountry, an entirely different set of rules apply. The reason? Resorts use several measures to protect you, including avalanche control and boundaries. It's also a great idea to go with a guide.

Backcountry Skiing & Snowboarding

Mountain Reports, Road Conditions and Live Web Cams

Check daily. Check often. Monitor snowfall and road conditions, then practice safe snow driving and ensure tires have proper tread and pressure (or better yet, ride the UTA Ski Bus). Resort roads may close — oftentimes at a moment's notice — due to unsafe driving conditions, natural avalanches or avalanche mitigation efforts.

Traffic and Road Conditions

Utah’s canyons serve as gateways to a high-elevation wonderland, offering panoramic, breathtaking views of Utah’s magnificent peaks for the entire journey. Still, these canyon roads can become dangerous in winter conditions and require extra care and attention. 

Many of Utah’s canyon roads, such as Big Cottonwood Canyon and Little Cottonwood Canyon, legally require four-wheel drive and snow tires for entry during the winter months. Closures for avalanche mitigation or dangerous road conditions are also common.
