PCS here. this week is tricky! Aim for Sun Valley late Monday into Tuesday or Jackson Tuesday morning or Wednesday. Snow levels are going to be 7,000 feet. Sun valley will have deep dense snow. Jackson will be deep up top but rain at the base. AVY work Tuesday morning might delay opening of Jackson Tuesday morning (Dense snow). Colder air arrives in the Tetons late Tuesday and Wednesday that may offer better quality. Alta or snowbird might be a good choice for Wednesday! Thursday best choice is Colorado. It’s too far out for me to guess which resorts in UT or Colorado this week. If you stay in between sun valley and the tetons you can make last minute decisions based on temps, web cams etc. You should score! Please feed our powder fund! Any powder feeds of $50 or more get you a $30 Phunkshun balaclava (Convertible). Let us know where you end up!
