PARK CITY, Utah — Utah’s first big storm of the winter season passed through over the weekend. Snow fell everywhere, from the foothills of the Salt Lake Valley to the mountain peaks, with some resorts reporting up to 25 inches of snow falling throughout the storm cycle. The next storm is expected to pass through Utah later in the week, with a pattern of similar storms predicted in an extended forecast by Powderchasers.
In only a matter of weeks, the first resorts in Utah will be opening, bringing on the ski stoke, and anticipation for first turns in the community. The first resort to open in Utah will be on November 18. These resorts include Alta Ski Area, Brian Head Resort, Park City Mountain Resort, and Solitude Mountain Resort
