Powder Skiing above the Clouds at Snowbasin

By Powderhound Matt \ January 7 2016

Storm days are awesome but sunshine on a powder day can’t be beat.  Sometimes that’s especially hard to come by at a place like Snowbasin but not today.  Today, we had the gift of skiing above the clouds almost all day.  It was pretty surreal. Eight inches of new snow, and the cloud deck was a couple of thousand feet below you.  A truly unique and awesome experience.  

 

Guess what? More snow on the way tonight.
