So, the word around town today was the Blizzard of 2010 was all hype. I would tend to agree, but then I rolled up on Solitude Mountain Resort at 10:00 a.m. and was treated to my 13th day of Powder skiing in the Wasatch this November. Most areas of the mountain had a solid foot of new snow overnight, bringing the two-day storm total, to about two feet. Not bad, considering we had an additional two feet the day before. The mountains are skiing like it's late January.
If your looking to ski some more powder tomorrow, I would have to say Solitude is the place to be. For the more advanced skiers be sure to check out Middle Slope off the Powder Horn chair. I promise, I left you guys plenty of untracked lines to ski. For those just looking to get out on the groomers be sure to check the Solitude mountain report in the morning to see where the corduroy has been laid down.
On the other side of the canyon, Park City Mountain Resort just announced their schedule for terrain openings over the next couple of days. Check it out!
