Just as Utah was shaking off the remnants of last season’s snow, a surprising early snowfall has already blanketed the slopes. Snowbird took to social media this morning to share images of the season’s first snow at Hidden Peak, captured by its Summit Webcam perched at 11,000 feet. A video at the top of the tram shows an employee shoveling a few inches.
The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City also released snapshots from Utah Department of Transportation cameras, showing snow accumulating on Bald Mountain Pass in the Uintah Mountains. Solitude Mountain Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon recorded snow falling at approximately 10,000 feet via its webcams on Labor Day morning.
According to 2022 records, Alta’s weather data center in Little Cottonwood Canyon did not register new snowfall until the end of October, FOX reports.
As the astrological summer does not officially conclude until the fall equinox on September 23, Utah residents are advised to enjoy the warm weather while they can. Winter’s coming.
Breckenridge, CO, Mount Hood Meadows, OR, Mount Washington, NH, Mount Shasta, CA, Sunshine Village Banff, AB, Pomerelle Mountain Resort, ID, and ski areas in Europe have all received snow in the last couple of weeks.
Ski season is less than 90 days away. Snowmaking is less than a month away.
Let the race to open begin!
