Usually people are left with a massive hangover after St. Patrick's day. Today was apparently no exception. Upon arriving at Alta at 9am not only were we parked in the front row but a lift line hadn't even even begun to form at the Collins Lift. That equals zero competition for those of us smart enough to lay off the booze last night and watch the weather instead.  Today truly was the sleeper storm of the year. Yesterdays forecast called for a trace -2  inches over night.  What we ended up skiing was something closer to 14 inches of the Greatest Snow on Earth. 

Matt Baydala, originally from Rockville Centre, New York, sniffed his way to Park City, Utah in 2006. Since then, he has built a career as the Owner of the Park City restaurant Yuki Yama Sushi. His passion and appreciation for the diversity of Utah’s wintersports product make him the perfect Powderhound. "For me skiing The Greatest Snow on Earth is not just a hobby; it’s an obsession," exclaimed Baydala. "Now I have the opportunity to share this awesome life we live out here with the entire skiing community."
