Park City Mountain Resort received over four feet of snow in 72 hours from a big holiday dump that blanketed the Western part of the country. The recent storm follows a tremendous early season, with the Resort recording 146” of snow for the season and an 82” settled base depth from the Jupiter Snow Stake.
“The early season snowfall and conditions are some of the best we’ve had in recent memory,” said Jenni Smith, President and General Manager for Park City Mountain Resort. “It’s the perfect welcome for our holiday guests.”
According to the National Weather Service, snow remains in the forecast through Thursday.
Ski Utah Powderhound Matt Baydala filmed this video on Monday, December 20, 2010 and had this to say:
“Since the terrain was so limited this morning, I was forced to ski the old reliable Pioneer lift and my God did it deliver. I've never had so many face shots at that altitude, period. Take a look for yourself; go ahead count the face shots!”
