Pray to Ullr, first big snowstorm predicted to hit this weekend

PARK CITY, Utah — The first big snowstorm to hit the Wasatch is forecasted for this upcoming weekend, prompting Powderchasers to declare it the first powder alert for the 2022-2023 winter season. This is great news for skiers and snowboarders, as the first resorts are expected to open on November 18.

The first snowstorm is predicted to move into the Rockies from the northwest around Saturday, while a second storm will come sometime around October 24. Temperatures for the weekend in Summit County are expected to hit lows in the teens while having the coldest high on Sunday at 34 degrees. This first storm is hitting the area very similar to the first storm of the 2021-2022 winter season. Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort received about a foot of snow in that storm.

“At this point, it looks like it has the potential to be a decent early-season storm with much colder temperatures, and accumulating snowfall, perhaps as low as 6,000 feet on Saturday night and Sunday in the Wasatch and Wasatch Back. We are still 5-6 days out on the storm, so exact details on amounts will become more apparent in the coming days,” said Evan Thayer, Utah forecaster for OpenSnow.

The second storm is forecasted to reach further south than storm one and has a time frame of October 24 to 28.
