New Snow Creates Great Ski Conditions, High Avalanche Danger

Ski conditions are great at all of our resorts, after massive snowfall last week. Many resorts received 2 or 3 or 4 feet of new snow. Fresh powder fell virtually every day last week. Another storm is expected to move in tomorrow and Wednesday. See our snow report for the latest totals.

Avalanche danger is high on steep slopes in backcountry areas all around the state. A man died in an avalanche yesterday while skiing out of bounds near Snowbasin. Read details.

Avalanche control work is performed regularly at developed ski resorts and along major roadways, so danger is minimal in those locations. In other areas danger is high. See the Utah Avalanche Center website for info and tips on how to stay safe in the backcountry.
