Five inches of fresh snow starting at about 3:00 am until 7:00 am this morning up at Solitude, with another 9 to 16-inches expected during the day today.
Looks like Saturday’s gonna be a great ski day, clear, sunny, and not too cold; all I need to do is get my pull myself out of the funk I’m currently in and get my head back in the game before tomorrow morning, because I don’t want to have the same kind of day that I did 3 weeks ago, when I hurt my back.
Then, good chances of more snow on Sunday and Monday … and again on Wednesday the 28th.
Avalanche danger is reported to be high in the backcountry, but I’m a resort skier, so I’m not too worried about slides. Speaking of, the Utah Avalanche Center is seeking a much-needed increase in funding from the Utah State Legislature. The decision is expected by the end of the month, so if you haven’t already done so, contact your representative and urge additional funding. Snowbird’s website has more info.
