Snow Skiing in May -- Utah vs Oregon

Jump to last reply

I am missing skiing already, everything is closed down now back East, so I was toying with the idea of going skiing for about 4 days around Memorial Day, which is the next time I can get away for that long. It is May 26th this year, so around May 22-26. I see that Timberline in Oregon and Snowbird in Utah are both open until about May 27th. I was wondering what the snow quality is really like then, anyone done it? I know right now they have about 100 inches base, and if it's similar to early March skiing back here, that's acceptable to me. I"m not crazy about icy stuff, like packed powder but some corn snow is okay. I was at Park City one year in mid-March, and it wasn't that great even then, but I know they close in April.

Of course there is Whistler up in BC, also, but I think that's a bit longer to get to from the airport, but the airfare and time to fly is about the same for me, actually, so I'm looking into that, also.
