ITS DEEP

Posted Thursday, March 14th, 2019 by Taylor McCorkle

Its March in Utah and the skiing just keeps getting better.

Lets take a minute to appreciate the fact that over the last 48 hours, Alta has gotten 38″ of new snow.  Yes, you heard that correctly, OVER THREE FEET IN TWO DAYS.  Snow report below brought to you by Onthesnow.com

The rest of the state isn’t doing so bad either.  The snow has been frequent and abundant this winter and I don’t think anyone is upset about it… Well expect the poor guys who have to plow the canyons.  We should all write them thank you notes at the end of the season.

Here’s a quick basin-filled map showing just how great this year has been.  We’re well above normal across the board for snow water equivalent

Expect quiet weather through the weekend as a ridge builds in over the intermountain west.
