After another 25 inches of snowfall, Alta Ski Area, UT, has broken a more than ten-year-old snow base record. It is the first time since the 2010/11 season that the Utah ski resort has had a 200-inch deep base.

After breaking through the 700 inch-marker for seasonal snowfall recently, Alta is poised to make this season one for the books. The record snowfall for the Alta Ski Area was set in 1981/82 with 748 inches. So why not come down and catch some powder while you can, and maybe be part of history, if Alta can break the more than 40-year-old record? Currently, the resort is at 722 inches, so it definitely looks possible.

The season at Alta will continue until at least April 23, 2023, but given how things are looking, it just may be extended all the way to May. Fingers crossed!
