40 Inches Of New Snow Delights Skiers
During the past three days we've had two massive winter storms dump on Utah - leaving up to 40 inches of new snow at some of our ski resorts.
People flocked to the slopes today to take advantage of the great powder. Right now we have the best conditions of the season for skiing and riding, and more snow is in the forecast. Winter conditions should hold on for a few more weeks.
Connect2utah.com has this good TV news report describing the storms and ski conditions. It includes video that is worth watching.
We also need to mention that avalanche conditions are high in areas away from the resorts. Avalanche control work is done to minimize the risk at developed resorts and along highways. The danger comes if you push out of bounds from the resorts or get into the backcountry.
See the Utah Avalanche Center for detailed information and current warnings.
Thankfully, Utah seldom gets tornadoes or other super-dangerous weather. Our hearts go out to those impacted by recent tornadoes in America's heartland.
