A snowy October, followed by a dry few weeks, had left Utahns wondering if winter would ever return. Yesterday they got their answer as Mother nature dumped almost two feet of snow on ski areas across the state.
SnowBrains’ Digital Editor awoke to two feet of fresh snow at his home in Salt Lake City and spent the day shredding at Alta Ski Area––check out his report.
We've had a number of questions on what this storm did for our statewide snowpack. Bottom line: it helped, but we still have a long way to go and need many more good events. The circled uptick of the black line is the contribution from this storm. #utwx pic.twitter.com/X4gFYu6Ozl
