It's Not Over Yet

Each year, as the ski season winds down, it seems like Old Man Winter always has a few more tricks up his sleeve. Last week, as Brighton, Solitude Mountain Resort, Snowbasin Resort and Alta were shutting it down everyone was blessed with one final powder day.  

During the Thursday night and Friday morning time period, all of the open Utah resorts saw about 10 inches of high density snow. This made for some really nice late season pow turns.  Temperatures dropped during the second half of the storm, actually they are still cold as I’m writing this Monday afternoon, so conditions have stayed great!

On Friday, I took over the Ski Utah Instagram account and we had a blast bouncing between Alta and Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort  Here are some of the photos and videos we took that day.

Remember, folks it’s not over! We’ve got one more weekend of skiing over at Alta and Snowbird will go until Memorial Day. I can promise you this, we will ski powder again this season and it might even be as early as next Sunday.  Keep your eye on the forecast because I’m seeing chances for more snow throughout the rest of the month.  The next 6-14 days look cold and moist, I'll let you know when it's time to put those powder skis away...





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."
