What a difference a year makes. The contrast between last spring and this spring is staggering. At Alta-Collins for example:
23 April 2011: Snow depth 181 inches, maximum hourly temperature 35ºF
23 April 2012: Snow depth 90 inches, maximum hourly temperature 59ºF
Need I remind the skiers out there that the Alta-Collins snow depth reached a maximum of 207" on April 30th last year. 207"! Further, the snowpack didn't drop to 100" until July 2nd. In fact, there was more snow at Alta-Collins on July 4th last year than there is today.
Utah skiers have experienced close to the full range of the Wasatch snow possibilities in just two years.
