Park City Season – IMAGE: skiutah.com
As we mentioned yesterday a split flow developed over Colorado with the highest moisture taking over the SW mountains and areas of the northern border near Wyoming and the Uintas.. The Uinta mountains are most likely up to to 2 feet or more. Unfortunately it left Colorado’s ski resorts sitting in the middle with up to 5 inches in the Aspen area, and a disappointing 3 inches at Eldora. It is still snowing up at Loveland Pass and I suspect light snow near Nederland. I expect snow to fill in again by Noon with wind shifts to the North and impacting the Front Range andSummit County into the evening. Winds shift to the NW for several hours this afternoon so snow will also be filling in around Vail. PM today or Wednesday morning still have some hope. Don’t expect huge amounts (3-7 into Wednesday morning). Not a bust y but certainly disappointing overnight! MY guess is that areas in the San Juna’s near Silverton and Telluride had well over a foot.
Utah logged very heavy snow in the Park City area (17 inches as of 5AM) and up to a foot in the Cottonwoods (Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, Solitude). Park City reaped the benefits of Southerly flow yesterday and Easterly flow last night spilling over from the NE corner (Uintas). Reports from yesterday is that the mountain is empty and freshies were abundant (Another 7 last night).
