Utah Hit By Big Snow

Almost 2 feet of new snow has fallen in some spots in northern Utah. All of our ski resorts received new powder. Check our snow report for details.

In general, crews have done a good job keeping roads open but there have been a few problems. More snow is possible Thursday and Friday and so travelers need to use caution.

The road through Little Cottonwood Canyon was closed for a time this morning while crews cleared a small snow slide. Big Cottonwood Canyon was also closed briefly while crews did avalanche control work. More closures are possible.

This news report describes the storm.

The avalanche danger is high in mountain areas throughout Utah. Developed ski areas and maintained highways are generally safe because of avalanche control work. Use extreme caution if you are venturing into other areas where there are steep mountain slopes.

This website has current avalanche information.
