A couple of us went up to Snowbird for the second half of the day and had a surprisingly awesome time on the slopes. The snow started around 12:30PM and came down hard the rest of the day. By the time we left there was already 4-5 new inches of snow on the ground. We posted some pictures and videos of today’s snow on our twitter account (@utahskiweather). Most resorts in the Wasatch will pick up another 3-5 inches tonight. Those looking for some pre-Thanksgiving powder turns should be able to find them tomorrow morning.
The upper-level low thats gave us the today’s snow will stick around for a couple more days. Expect on and off snow showers at all of the resorts in northern Utah through Saturday. Any one of these snow showers could drop an inch or two snow.
The two major global models (GFS and ECMWF) continue to show an active pattern in in the western US for the next couple weeks – let’s hope one of these systems is able to deliver us our first major storm of the year.
