A Good Day with More to Come

It was great to get in some storm skiing this afternoon.  Snowfall rates at Alta were pretty much pegged at about an inch an hour from 9 am to 4 pm.

Looks like Alta-Collins is now up to 1.5 inches of water 17 inches of snow for the storm total and climbing.  

I heard the lift lines were long in the morning, but I skied in the afternoon when the crowds were tolerable and the steady snow made for fun turns.  I even ran into a few members of the University of Utah Snow Study Team who having returned from the Tug Hill Plateau are trying to rack up as much vertical as possible.    

Of course, the best way to finish a ski day is to come home and see the radar lit up upstream.  Voila!

Yup, things are looking good for more snow, courtesy of this latest atmospheric river.  Enjoy!
