Going up Big Cottonwood through the windshield
Dec 13 is really late for the first really big snow in UT, but that is what has happened this year. But if this keeps up we will be true to the state slogan, "Best Snow on Earth". Today all the ski resorts got from 24 to 32 inches of fresh powder. And it is still snowing.

I know, for all the places that have been getting snow for weeks this is no big deal, but we breathed a sign of relief today.

For those of you interested in skiing, snowboarding, etc in UT here is some info that might help if you aren't familiar with the area. The links will help you get lots of current info.

Little Cottonwood Canyon (also out of Salt Lake City) offers Snowbird Ski Resort Ski Snowbird & Alta Ski Resort Ski Alta (Alta does not allow snowboards.)
