Local photographer, John Howland spent nearly every day this winter on Utah's slopes.
Although winter didn't provide as much snow as we're typically used to, John experienced amazing snow, beautiful bluebird days and landed a winter full of memorable experiences (and photos). Here's what John has to say postseason including some of his favorite shots.
words by John Howland
There’s no doubt, the first half of the Utah season didn’t shape up like we had hoped, but if you kept putting your boots on in the morning, you were certainly rewarded. While I did have to up my mental game, as February bumped on; it was hard to ignore how nice skiing under bluebird sky was each day. In my second season in Utah, and following the best season of my life; I learned you never give up on a Winter in Utah.
Trying to capture ski images while the storms that battered Montana just refused to slide south, was tough; but, maybe the challenge was the reward.
March seems to be a historically good month in Utah, and it was, but big storms in April kept everyone hungry for more.

The late-season revival could only mean one thing, the resurgence of spring skiing! As closing days approached, it felt like we had finally just got going. The resorts looked totally filled in and the parties went off weekend after weekend.

It was a tough start, but Utah always seems to come through. Now I start counting down, hoping for some early snow and maybe some skiing on Thanksgiving!
