lcc (little cottonwood canyon) is very unique it is a closed canyon and snowbird is almost at the top so the storms can't leave till the clouds are lite enough to rise OVER the top of the canyon.the great salt lake is 30 miles northwest of snowbird.the storms pick up energy and saltwater as the storms come in .the salt sucks the moisture out and the snow gets lite.I mean lite.you can be snowboarding on a 20 inch day and still be hitting the bottom.You also can get 100 inches in a week and still get 2 bluebird days in there somewhere.it is a safe bet for a ski trip they always have tons of snow it snows often,the snow quality stays good for the most part even day or 2 after a storm.The fresh snow does get skied out really quick maybe under 1 hour.Lots of pros skiing and boarding, all the locals are hardcore.Do not go to snowbird if you do not consider yourself to be an expert skier that can ski deep powder and very steep tight rocky exposed areas. if you can then go there bring a camera pack a snorkel for the powder and ski it hard.It is not for the family skiers,and it is not good for kids.The resort on a good day in the right spot is as equal as any heli run out there but you got there from the tram.
