Presidents' Day Brings Great Opportunity To Ski, Hike, Bike

Presidents' Day weekend is always a big ski holiday in Utah and conditions should be excellent on the slopes this year.

A storm last weekend dumped on Utah's mountains, bringing fresh powder to Utah resorts. Deer Valley received the most snow with a whopping 21 inches of new. Brighton picked up 20 inches. Park City received 18.

More snow is possible every day this week, as a series of weak impulses brush by. The best change for new snow will come Thursday, with a 40% probability.

We are enjoying mild weather. Daytime highs are reaching the upper 30s F at Park City - very nice ski weather.

Meanwhile, spring has arrived early in southern Utah. St George is expected to reach 69 F on Saturday, then cool to the mid 60s with a slight chance of rain on Presidents' Day. Moab will see temperatures in the mid to upper 40s, with only a slight chance of rain.

Brian Head Ski Resort, located above Cedar City in southern Utah, has a healthy 45 inch snow base and offers good skiing.

At lower elevations in southern Utah the weather is perfect for hiking, biking and many other outdoor sports.
