Our reporter Aaron Rice was in the Alta backcountry yesterday and couldn’t believe how deep it was. His video is up top for proof.
“Amazing, old fashioned, Cottonwoods storm–the largest of the year–which ain’t sayin’ much in a year like this. Alta Collins weather station has an incredible 34 inches of storm snow as of this morning–almost 3 feet! Most other locations in the Cottonwood Canyons are around 2-2.5 feet.” – Utah Avalanche Center

They knew a good cold storm was coming a few days in advance, but predictions were in the 6-12 range with some forecasters saying 8-16. nobody expected 3+ft
