Alta just broke 400″ of snowfall this season today and is currently sitting at 404″.
Alta averages 545″ of snowfall per year.
Snowbird broke 400″ last week and is currently sitting at 420″.
We got out to Alta on Valentine’s Day and they had Mt. Baldy open and it was wildly fun.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for both Alta & Snowbird that is calling for 2-6 more inches of snow today after they both just got 8″ of snow overnight last night.
Last week, Alta & Snowbird were completely shut down for 52-hours due to high avalanche danger.
