A historic streak of October storms hit the state of Utah last week, leading to the first powder days of the season for those who wanted to earn their turns. At Alta, a lot of people wanted to get their first runs in of the season after twenty-four inches of fresh snow. So much in fact that a lot of the mountain is already tracked out. For local Alta skiers, this is definitely a familiar sight. One interesting aspect of these photos though is seeing how the newly merged trails Nina’s Curve and Schuss Gully are when they have snow on them and are tracked out. Over the weekend, SR-210 also faced its first road closure of the season due to an automobile crash.

According to Wasatch Snow Forecast, it looks like some more snow is coming into Utah today, and more snow will come in between October 24-28th. And we haven’t even reached ski season yet! Just a pre-season reminder: patrollers aren’t active at the moment at these resorts. If you go, have a plan in case you get injured.
Refresh late Monday into Monday night in the Wasatch. Looking more likely to see decent snowfall in the Oct 24-28 timeframe as well.
