Utah Has Snow! Resorts Start Opening Next Weekend
A big, cold, wet storm smashed into Utah today, dropping 4-6 inches of snow in some mountain locations. Snow will continue to fall in mountain areas tomorrow, with rain at times in valleys, and then another round will bring snow to valleys Saturday.
The snow caused some minor travel problems, but nothing too serious. Travelers should watch forecasts and be prepared for winter-like conditions.
Utah's ski resorts are loving the snow as they prepare to open for the season during the next couple weeks. Below we give tentative opening dates as provided by skiutah.com. With this cold snow, a resort or two may decide to open early, so check back for updates.
