Coming from LA and looking for the best options (recent snow or forecast snow) for this coming weekend, Saturday to Monday. I have flights already booked to SLC, but thinking I should pay the extra to change since it’s my one trip for the year.
There will be a small system this Saturday morning over the Tetons (4.5 hours from Salt lake) but right now does not look deep (perhaps 2-5). It might put down light snow over the Wasatch as well.
