Utah is getting pounded right now as well, 30" at Alta since Monday, another 1-2 feet expected by tomorrow morning. Don't expect Alta to open before their scheduled day (Nov 18 I think). Their operational permit from the forest service only allows a certain number of days. If they open early, they close early. PC, Brighton and Solitude are typically the first resorts in Utah to open, but on a very limited basis (usually one lift, and a few runs). Utah is infamous for drastic weather extremes this time of year. It very well could be 70 degrees and sunny in a week.
