Snow in Utah's high country has skiers excited. The storm that left Utah yesterday dropped a fair amount in some spots, including Alta and Snowbird. Early bird ski enthusiasts were seen hiking up the hill and skiing down.
This snow will probably all melt, as temperatures recover this weekend. But more will soon come.
SkiUtah.com is out with its new Ski Utah magazine, which is a comprehensive guild to all things skiing in Utah. It gives details about each of our 15 resorts, plus great information about other winter activities and lodging options.
Another New Utah Ski Hill?
A Daggett County group hopes to build a new resort on the shores of Flaming Gorge Reservoir, complete with a ski hill.

It is far from a done deal, and there will be great debate about the merits of the plan. This article has details.
