Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah – It’s currently puking at Snowbird, so it seems like an appropriate time to share this video about the life of a snow reporter.

For the snowiest ski resorts in the country, part of their marketing teams include a snow reporter. These individuals track snowfall totals and report trail and lift openings/closings on the mountain’s website. It’s one of the best jobs in the ski industry that you can have if you’re an early bird (i.e., not me).

Snowbird, consistently among the snowiest ski resorts in North America, shared a video detailing Sabrina’s daily routine as their snow reporter. Her morning typically starts at 4:30 a.m., as she has 15 minutes to get out of bed and make her way up the Canyon. After arriving at the ski resort, she checks the snow totals across the resort, writes up the morning report, posts event content on social media, and then samples the powder.

For more information about what it’s like to work as a snow reporter, check out Snowbird’s video below.
