The snow has stacked up everywhere in Utah now. From the valleys to the mountain tops we’ve all taken it on the chin and we couldn’t be happier about it. Following the Christmas storm that put down between 1-3 feet of heavy base building snow, the snow Gods delivered a back to back blow with an artic front, followed by lake effect snow. The results, feet and feet of 4% blower pow!  The resort skiing is the best it’s been in 4 years if you ask me. Even the lower elevation skiing is out of control right now.  

Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resort didn’t miss this one either. I skied four runs in the aspens of Super Condor Monday and I’m being honest, it was deeper than anything I’ve skied in the past 4 years! All systems go in Utah! 

Here is a little tip for this time of year.  If you want to ski trees, ski aspens not pines. The pines collect the majority of the snow on their branches while the aspens don’t have nearly the coverage in the canopy. Therefore it will be twice as deep in your favorite aspen grove. Enjoy!

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."
