They make snow there. I would watch to see if Park City opens on schedule (thanksgiving). There should be runs to ski, but the amount depends on the amount of snow we get later this month. Some of the other resorts are open. I think that it is supposed to be a bit warmer next week. I remember a couple of years ago it was pretty bleak and suddenly started skiing Dec 1st and it didn't stop all winter. It turned into an amazing ski season.

Watch the low temps at night anything below freezing they will be making snow. It's around 14 degrees right now. You should be fine. Have fun.

You're still about a month out and with the way snow can accumulate in the Wasatch, we really only need one solid storm, or a few medium ones to get a lot of terrain open...if not, as the other posters have noted, there's a good amount of snowmaking that should get at least a decent chunk of terrain open.

That's always a little early but you should have some skiing, albeit probably limited runs. The Canyons will open next Friday with a few runs. It's early season so you have to expect it to be a bit sketchy and limited. But you'll find plenty to do in town.
