Utah Now Has Massive Snow - Even Some In Our National Parks

We've just ended a string of several stormy days, and the results are dramatic. Some of our ski resorts have received more than four feet of new snow during the past week. Conditions are now very good for skiing and boarding.

Our newest resort, Eagle Point, located near Beaver in southern Utah, was left dry until this last series of storms. It now has three feet of snow and will open this Friday for daily operation.

Yesterday's storm pushed through southern Utah and dropped a little snow at Zion Park. An unnamed park employee posted an amazing photo to flickr.com - you can see it here. (It is copyrighted and so we can't show the image.)

Canyonlands National Park reports snow on Island In The Sky Mesa: Snow, snow, snow at ISKY! Highway 313 is plowed to Dead Horse Point SP but not beyond yet. Shafer Trail is closed again. (Didn't last long.)

The snow will melt quickly from our national parks - it may already be gone from exposed areas but it will linger a bit longer in shady spots. It creates dramatic scenery. Wish I could get down there tomorrow.
