PARK CITY, Utah — WOW, another double-digit storm has delivered the goods to Park City mountains. All this early-season snow has caused the Utah Avalanche Center to issue a HIGH avalanche danger rating at mid and upper elevations for today. Deer Valley reports 20″ in the last 48 hours, and Park City Mountain shows 18″. Snowbird takes the cake, with 27″ of snow reported in the previous 48 hours.
The Utah Avalanche Center issued today’s report warning, “In most places, the snowpack has more than doubled, and there are many ways for avalanches to break today. There is simply a lot of very heavy new snow containing a lot of water combined with strong south winds blowing for the last 48 hours. At low elevations, there was rain before temperatures cooled,” and is urging skiers and riders to give the snowpack time to adjust to these rapid changes.
