It was a great run over the past couple of weeks with some of the best early season skiing seen around here in the past 30 years.
Coverage after last week's storm was quite impressive and for November 12, likely the 2nd best since 1990 based on long-term observations from the Snowbird SNOTEL. Pent up desire was apparent in both the backcountry and at the resort with hoards of skiers ascending into the Cottonwood Canyons backcountry and resorts.
Sadly, the powder party is over for now as the pattern is shifting fairly dramatically. Call it "Fall Break." The GFS forecast below shows a high amplitude ridge developing along the west coast of North America early this coming work week (forecast below for 5 PM MST Tuesday).
