Already having a great season so far, a new storm system heading for Utah will dump up to another FOOT of fresh snow on ski resorts this weekend. The NOAA has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Friday through Saturday.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
Utah and southwest Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected today and tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A storm will impact the region Saturday night through Sunday
night. A potential exists for accumulating snow across mainly the
northern and western Utah valleys. Significant snow accumulations
will be possible across the northern mountains and potentially
southwest Wyoming.

A second grazing storm system may bring additional light snow to
the northern mountains Tuesday.

The forecast discussion from the NOAA explains:

Expect precipitation to fill in along the cold front, with many lower valleys beginning as rain before snow levels quickly lower to the valley floors with increasing precipitation rates and the arrival of colder air. Most valleys across northern and western Utah are expected to see some accumulating snow. However, the bulk of it will fall during the daytime hours Sunday, especially across central Utah. Northern mountains could see significant snowfall…

Looks like Sunday will be THE day! Fresh powder and free refills for all. Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude could all see 7-12″, and Deer Valley and Park City 4-8″.
