October was going just great. Skiing to be had in multiple NE states. Then along comes November and rains on the parade. Suck it up November, get with the program!

Joe Bastardi has a forecast of just below normal for November in the northeast. (he was dead on accurate with his Oct forecast) Not the heart of the cold which is in the upper Midwest but slightly below normal. Lets get to the middle of the month before we tank it. Gore says they are planning opening the weekend before Thanksgiving because it is as late as can be this year. Get the leaves down so I can clear them then I'll be ready.

Go to Weatherbell.com, play Saturday summary 11/2. He's thinking maybe a 93-94 analog which if you remember was a pretty dam good season:smile: He can also be followed on Twitter under the name Big Joe Bastardi. Not everyone agrees with me but I've found him to be pretty good (He has, and admits it busted from time to time - they all have).

Below normal what? Temp? Yay! Snowfall? Boo.

Did you look at the vid? He had pretty much just below normal temps for Nov, Dec, Jan getting cold Feb. For Snowfall he's thinking pretty much normal is what I got out of it. Hey I'll take normal.

+1 I didn't ski much in 1994 but I would love to have a year like that. 2001 I remember skiing day after Thanks Giving at K and it was snowing a foot that day and year was sick.:)

Snowing now in downtown SLC.

TB, I know your going to drive me crazy this winter. Keep posting tr's and pics. Working on hopeful trip to SLC in spring now. EWR-SLC $600 rt, EWR-Den $250 rt, for the week I want to go. May be taking a drive (with a stop or 2) from DEN to SLC and back, if you know what I mean.

Wait for the Southwest semi annual sale. You can get Newark to anywhere they fly for like $320 round trip. Usually happens end of November-December for travel February-April. Patience, grasshopper.

:lol: Happy to serve! As said, look for deals with Southwest and JetBlue. SLC is also a major Delta hub, so they run some deals every now and then. It is less than an hour from SLC Airport to Alta.

Sure there are good deals to Denver, but look at how far it is from DEN to the resort you want to visit. With the exception of Loveland or A-Basin it can be a haul. And 70 can be nasty.

Within one hour of SLC you've got:

* Sundance (yes, it is Robert Redford's resort and it is pretty cool actually);
* Alta-Snowbird;
* Brighton/Solitude
* Canyons-Park City Resort-Deer Valley
* Snowbasin

And a few minutes more to Powder Mountain.

SLC has some nice accommodations...Little America or Grand America are posh.
