Alta Ski Area: 24 Hour – 18″ | Base Depth – 33″ | Season Snowfall – 62″
Mother Nature finally showed the Wasatch some love and delivered the goods last night. After an agonizing dry spell and record-breaking high temps the last few weeks, pow-deprived Utahans awoke this morning to a fresh blanket of white gold.
The storm picked up yesterday afternoon with most of the snow falling late last night and into the morning. The Cottonwoods were definitely favored, with Alta/Snowbird leading the pack at 13 inches as of this morning. Snow continued to fall, making for a dreamy morning and a nice little teaser for (*hopefullly) what is right around the corner.
24 hour snow totals:
- Alta: 13″
- Snowbasin: 12″
- Brighton: 11″
- Snowbird: 11″
- Park City: 6″
The extended forecast currently shows no new snow on the horizon, with clear skies and high pressure moving in for the foreseeable future.

Still, no complaints about a morning full of face shots and cold temps should keep the new snow around for a bit. Hopefully winter comes back in full force after this—we’re running out of skis to burn!
