One to two feet of new snow reported at most Utah resorts in the past 24 hours. Fresh powder abounds. Snow showers continue thru Wednesday.
You should either be skiing/riding right now, or working and pretending it didn’t snow at all. You should not be torturing yourself by reading this. It’s bad enough that I have to torture myself by writing it. I’m missing only my second powder day of the season and it’s still painful.
All major resorts have seen 8-20″ of snow since Sunday night. Storm has performed admirably, despite the reservations I shared yesterday. It’s a complicated storm, and certainly not your typical Wasatch snow storm, but it seems the abundance of moisture and slow movement have made up for any other complications. Snow showers will continue thru Wednesday. Additional accumulations will vary greatly. Localized areas could see another 6-12″ while other areas could get hardly any additional accumulations.
The nice thing about this storm is that it didn’t discriminate. Everybody from Brian Head up to the Idaho border got at least halfway decent accumulations. Park City really did well, with as much or more than the Cottonwoods in spots. Here is a look at Empire Lodge at Deer Valley today:
And they Park City snowstakes this morning:
Great storm for the Wasatch and it’s not over yet… I’m still down with the black lung. Clearly I’m happy to celebrate with you all that it’s a powder day… Not bitter at all…
