Ski conditions above 9000 feet were actually fun where the wind wasn't roaring. On the Park City Ridgeline, we found a tempest. I took this photo during a "lull" just prior to the frontal passage.
Although I wasn't in the valley to observe the frontal passage, a friend sent me the photo below. I'm sure you all enjoyed it. In the mountains, the visuals weren't as dramatic, but there was thunder and eventually heavy snowfall of 2-3 inches an hour.
That led to "sh-t show" conditions driving down Big Cottonwood.
Great to see winter is BACK BABY!
I bet the turns will be good tomorrow if you can bear the cold (-19ºC at 700 mb/10,000 feet based on the models). Be careful out there if you are heading into the backcountry. The frontal snow will hide a lot of booby traps.
