500 is a Beautiful Number in Utah

Yesterday morning as skier and snowboarders were sliding through the 6-13" of new snow that fell around the Wasatch, Alta and Brighton surpassed that oh so wonderful mark of 500 inches of snowfall for the 2007-08 season.

For Brighton this came around 6am when their snow total reached 503” of fluffy white goodness. They currently have a base depth of 132” and boasting 32 amazing powder days so far this season. Yea, it's been an amazing year.

In the past 28 years reaching 500 inches of snowfall has only come 4 times in the month of February, this year being one of those four. Their base depth is 154". Lines I'm used to skiing at Alta are completely filled in this year. Options abound.

I didn't realize how stellar the base depths here in Utah were until earlier this morning when I was looking at a friend's Facebook page where he has a feed with all the Colorado resorts listed with their base depths. There were only 3 resorts in Colorado with depths over 100" while in Utah there are only 3 with base depths under 100". Hmmm...where to ski, where to ski?
