Many resorts reporting 8-15″ of additional snow since reporting this morning. Snow showers will continue off and on this evening, becoming more numerous as the night goes on. Snow should continue tomorrow morning before tapering off by afternoon. Cottonwoods should be favored in an unstable northwest flow tomorrow.
Can’t wipe the smile off my face today! Been waiting for a storm like this for a long time.
Took a quick peak at snowpack data, looks like the Wasatch is at 95-100% of normal now and should be above normal by tomorrow. 🙂
Snow continues to fall heavily in the mountains of Utah and should continue through most of today. A bit of a break this evening is possible before the next colder section of this storm moves in late tonight into Wednesday morning, depositing fluff on top. A break early on Thursday before a weaker system moves in Christmas Eve into Christmas day.
Wow! Quite the storm and still going. Winds have subsided, but the snow keeps piling up. Here is a look at the current (6:15am) radar, showing the hose just pummeling the Wasatch right now:
All mountains of Northern and Central Utah have seen good snow from this storm so far, but Park City, the Wasatch Back, and Big Cottonwood have been absolutely feasting off this flow. Check out the totals today and how they have affected the storm totals since early Sunday morning!
Nearly two feet for many areas in the last 24 hours! It’s a bit unusual to see LCC in the middle of the pack. Great news for Park City skiers!
Empire at Deer Valley:
Snow levels are dropping currently and winds have subsided quite a bit, skiing today should actually be pretty darn good on the terrain ski patrol is able to get open. Snow will taper off or lighten up a bit this afternoon. Another trailing trough will push in tonight with another 6-12″ of snow likely for tomorrow’s fun!
A break late Wednesday thru Thursday. Then another system pushes in for Thursday night into Christmas Day. This system still looks to take most of its energy south, but wrap around precip will likely deliver some additional snowfall to the region.
With so much snow currently falling, it seems silly to spend much time on the long range. We’ll take a look at that tomorrow. Needless-to-say, if anybody was worried at all that there wouldn’t be enough snow for their holiday trips. I think it’s safe to say those worries can be put to bed.
