Utah Mountains Pick Up Snow

The first winter-like storm of the season dumped about 10 inches of snow at Alta Ski Resort. Other mountain locations also picked up snow. Valleys statewide received substantial rain.

Another storm is expected to hit this weekend, bringing more rain to valleys and snow to mountain areas.

Ski enthusiasts are ecstatic. If weather conditions continue to develop as expected, our ski resorts will open well before Thanksgiving and we’ll have another great season.

Meanwhile, it is still early fall and most days will be mild, with plenty of sunshine. Indian summer is a delightful time in Utah. Hunting seasons are underway. This is the best time of year to a our desert canyons. Fishing is very good in most of our lakes and streams.

Fall colors will be tapering off now at high elevations in northern Utah, but are still spectacular in southern Utah, and at lower elevations in the north.
