Skiers Enjoy Powder After Big Snowstorm
A huge snowstorm dumped on Utah over the weekend, bringing abundant powder that thrilled skiers even while it snarled traffic. Our resorts now offer very good conditions for skiing and boarding, and the weather guy promises more new snow during the next few days.
Nine of our resorts received 20+ inches of new snow from the storm. Several picked up more than 30 inches. Brighton now leads the snow derby with a base of 60 inches. Not bad for early-December.
All of our resorts are now open except two. Powder Mountain is set to open this Saturday (Dec 15) and Beaver Mountain has yet to announce a firm date.
The long-term weather forecast suggests we are in for a snowy winter - with storms lining up at the starting gates. It looks like the Christmas season will be great this year - perhaps the best conditions ever for skiing during that popular time period.
Better get out your skies.
