According to my co-worker Meisha, yesterday was a great day to be up on the mountain as it snowed about 8 inches over the course of the day. This morning, I was hoping that it might have snowed a bunch more overnight, but instead we saw only a few more flakes. That extra skiff of snow did make for some fun riding when I took a quick run up in McConkey's to snap the couple of photos you see above. I can personally vouch that the snow conditions are really getting quite good after the past several storms. To see for yourself check out more pix from this season in our Park City Mountain Resort Flickr photostream.
Speaking of snow, I'd like to shed some light on the process that we use in our snow reporting. We update our 24 hour snow total daily at 5 am, and if it's snowing, our 12 hour total once at 5pm - this snowfall information can be found on our snow report page (we will be putting up a description of this process on that page shortly). If you want to see more snow plot information, visit these Summit and Jupiter snow stake data pages (the text option is really sweet for those of you with web access on your phones). Bear in mind that these readings are posted via technologies that are not infallible and the snow readings can be affected by any number of factors including wind, settling, sun and more. If neither of those are updating, you can also try the Thaynes Canyon SNOTEL site located in near our Summit stake, this station reports snow depth and temperature but precipitation only reported as snow water equivalent.
PS If it was a blog reader that yelled out "thanks" to the patrollers ski cutting at the top of Crescent Lift this morning, I'd like to say "Thank You!" to you for reading!
