The Snow Returns!

It's that time of year, what I call the Best of Both Worlds Season. What the heck am I talking about? Read on and find out.
The Snow Returns!

I haven't said this very often this winter but it's been a while since we saw the flakes flying.  March started off on track but then things got really springy around these parts. The entire Western half of North America saw temperatures climb well above average for multiple weeks. For a moment there, I was even getting a tad nervous... I mean, I enjoy Spring skiing as much as the next guy but I think we can all agree,  Powder Skiing is where it's at for me anyway. 

From March 28th at Alta. Seriously, March never dissapoints. 

Well now we've reached that time of year where we are going to get the "Best of Both Worlds" for the foreseeable future. What does that mean? Well we are in one of those patterns now that is fairly progressive. Simply put, that means weather systems will come and go pretty quickly. On Saturday it will be snowing and cold, by Sunday it will be sunny and warm. You can pretty much copy and paste that program for the next week to ten days, if not longer. That simply means everyone wins. If you like Spring skiing, you'll get some, if you like powder skiing, well more pow is on the way! 

Thursday and Friday are perfect examples of this sort of weather pattern.  Check out my video from the past couple of days and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.  Thursday was cold and snowy at Park City Mountain, so far Friday has been warm, sunny and dry.
