Utah Gets Perfect Weather to Ski, Golf, Hike, Bike

After weeks of cold and storm, extremely nice weather has pushed over Utah - and it looks like it will stay around for the next several days.

Salt Lake City will have daytime highs in the mid to upper 40s, with mostly clear skies. Conditions will be very pleasant at area ski resorts. A storm may move in on Sunday, bringing welcome new powder to the ski resorts. All the resorts have a solid snow base and offer very good skiing.

In the St George/Zion Park area, highs will be in the low to mid 60s, with no storms in the forecast. Conditions will be perfect to golf the red rock courses, hike the lower trails in Zion, explore Snow Canyon State Park, ride ATVs at Sand Hollow State Park, or bike area trails.

Moab weather will also be very nice, with highs in the high 40s or low 50s. You can't ask for nicer weather to bike the Slickrock Trail, hike in Arches National Park, or jeep in Canyonlands. A small storm may move into this area Saturday night.

This delightful weather is a real bonus. St George may glide straight into spring, without any more winter-like storms. Apricot and almond trees will be blooming in just a few weeks.

Northern Utah will yet see cold and storm, but days are getting longer, average temperatures are inching up and spring is just around the corner.

I may have to ditch work and go hiking.
