Skiing in early December

Skiing in early December

I am planning a ski trip for 2 beginner to intermediate skiers for Dec 6-11. We are primarily coming to ski and go tubing. Should we be worried about there being snow during that time?

Welcome to the forum. Yah, that's pretty early. You'll for sure have snow for skiing, but open terrain will be limited. It's also early for tubing but Gorgoza on I-80 should be open. So you'll have an experience on snow but the snow will be limited. Every week later you can push will be incrementally better.

Have fun.

There will be man-made snow for sure on a handful of runs. As long as you don't mind potentially skiing the same runs over and over, you will enjoy it. Hopefully you'll get lucky and mother nature will cooperate.

Greetings and welcome to the forum.

It's probably going to be opening week at Deer Valley, so maybe only 25% of the trails will be open. Park City is scheduled to open on Nov. 18th. It's all weather and temp related though. If you were wanting powder, tree skiing or anything off piste, it's not the best time. Because you'll be skiing beginning and intermediate terrain, you'll likely still have plenty to keep you busy. 25% of Park City is larger than well know resorts back East like Stowe. Rates will likely be very reasonable for lodging too.
