Considering driving up from San Diego to Skyline, UT Friday, and staying through Monday. Is it worth the trip? 12+ hour drive each way, and going alone, so putting this one together carefully.

How have the conditions been lately?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

Conditions have been pretty epic. We had a couple feet of new snow fall last week and through the weekend. As the parking lot for Skyline sits at 9,600, there is almost always clean wind. Last Monday, we went up with a forecast predicting 6-8 mph from the South and we rode from 12PM to sunset. In my opinion it is always worth the trip. See ya up there...

Jeffro,

I might have to rescind a bit. Looks like we are getting some pretty snowy weather coming in. Might be a bit hard to see on the top of Skyline...80% chance of snow for Fri, Sat, Sun. Monday is looking great, DallRock, you should be right on time. If you are coming for the weekend, there is a very nice kiting spot just a 1000 vertical feet below the top that is usually pretty good even in a storm.

The snow is looking amazing for the event next week! (snowkitemasters.com) Cant wait.

Jeff,

The forecast for Friday & Saturday is heavy snow. Sunday should be excellent and Monday as well.
