Sunday Funday

Sunday PM update…

Southern Utah is under the gun once again with heavy snow developing this afternoon at Brian Head. Additional accumulations down there could be significant. Perhaps worth a drive for your Monday…?

Accumulations in the Wasatch will be dependent on how much moisture makes it north.  Snow should become more widespread late tonight into tomorrow. Perhaps 3-8″ by Monday evening.

Next wave then moves in Monday night into Tuesday and should bring 6-12″ of additional snow to the Wasatch. Much colder air and lower snow levels.




Brian Head, as expected, was the big winner yesterday. They got under a heavy snow band for much of the morning and ended up picking up 23″ of new snow!   Amounts varied greatly farther north. Eagle Point saw 12″ while PC and Cottonwood resorts are reporting 4-10″. Resorts north of I-80 are generally under 3″. In general, the theme of better snow farther south held true.

Snow will pick up again today in the south and extend north similar to yesterday. A reinforcing system will bring in cooler air and a more northwesterly flow tomorrow and Tuesday.

more chances for powder! Keep a close eye on radar and webcams…

    What’s the chances of getting some lake effect for the Monday Tuesday storm?

    Let it snow. Hope you get it in Telluride.

    I’ll be skiing with my 21 month daughter today at Brian Head. It is a good place for that. Less wear and tear on dad than the Alta rope tow.

    You should consider re-listing the website as… Just saying.

    So is the 3-8 for the “reinforcing system” or is that for the push of moisture tonight into tomorrow?

    • No. The reinforcing northwest flow storm will move in tomorrow night thru Tuesday. An additional 6-12″ on top of the 3-8″ mentioned above.

      Just got this email 3/1 from friend skiing Colorado: Skiing the past week in Beaver Creek and will be here for another week. The good news is that Colorado is getting hammered. The heaviest snowfall has been in the San Juans (SW Colorado). Telluride, Durango and Wolf Creek received 3-4′ last week and are expecting another 3-4′ in the next three days. Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and surrounding areas have gotten about 2-3′ since we’ve been here and are expecting another foot or more in the next few days. Sheila has been skiing and has been raving about the conditions. I snow shoed yesterday in drifts of 3′ and more . Conditions don’t get any better than this!
