Snowing in Park City (at least on TV)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm watching the Freestyle World Cup on Tivo, and it's absolutely dumping in Park City...what gives?

This competition was actually held on January 11-13. This was shown on television delayed.

Kind of like our storms delayed!

Hey man! You're Physic! (as Paul Newman once said)
Looks like a solid six inches of fluff out there and not a moment too soon. We were worrying about fires in August, not to mention lack of powder turns... I'll have to go see what's out there. Don't laugh, but today would be a great Deer Valley day.. 6 inches on top of perfect, steep corduroy. Oh well, have to make do with PCMR, where I have my pass...

Both Deer Valley and PCMR are reporting 0" in the past 24 hours.?Did it all fall in SLC? The weather forecast says fluries and 2" possible tonight. I'll take any new snow. We are coming in this weekend for a week of skiing. Just hoping the temps stay low.

They don't update in real-time. Just go to PCMR's website and look at the live webcams and you can see what Mr. Crab's talking about. Blue skies right now, but hopefully snow will come back.

^^^Thanks pcskier. Good to hear they're getting some freshies.

The other answer is you need to adjust your TV Antenna

It was so light and fluffy that it didn't register on the snow stakes

IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME! Maybe not a ten, but from what we've had lately, pretty darn good. Started early laying freshies on the groomers and then moved to the back bowls by late a.m. There was about 4-6 inches on the groomers, but it all fell after 3 a.m. so it was gliding through the pow with a nice base- which really helped because it was such light dry blower that you pretty much cut right through it to whatever was underneath. But- it gave a nice soft bounce to every turn. The bumps had a great blanket on them too. It got deeper higher, a good nine to 12 inches but I didn't measure because I didn't want to chill my whatsits. The back bowls were deserted, as was the whole mountain, and there were fresh lines everywhere- a little crunchy here and there underneath, but hey- It was enjoyable watching snowboarders do inverted hucks off the cornice in Scott's Bowl and landing in an explosion of fluff. My camera died at that point- too bad. The best part was some of the hike accessed terrain where the pow was easily knee-deep. The line of the day was arcing tight turns down a chute by the O-zone (that's over by the tree, after the rock) with the slough forming a mini avalanche all around... couldn't be better. The Mantras loved it, couldn't be happier snapping off three meter arcs in the steeps. Got their first core shot...

P.S. How were the Cottonwoods? Ant? Bushwhacker? The snow was amazing on our ridgetops and I could look right over into Brighton. The view was beyond forever today.

Crab did you replace those markers on your Mantras?
Is Ant still teaching at PCMR or has she moved on?
post #12 of 18
I had one of the Mantras delaminate and Volkl replaced it in less than a week so I put on Sollie 912 ti race whatevers- they are red and very snazzy. Haven't had any more double forward ejections... Ant's at the Bird. It's trying to snow some more. Dawn will tell...

We need an update on the overnight Mr Crab. And what's in the forecast for next week ?

Suns not up yet, but I don't see anything new here in PC town. The TV weather people, after predicticting a foot of new, were mumbling last night about another storm that "passed by". Looks like Colorado may get hit. We did pick up some lake effect though, with Alta reporting 7 inches-http://www.alta.com/pages/report.php

It should be sunny and cold the next few days, and the groomers have a lot (relatively) of new snow to work with, so the corduroy should be good everywhere. Also any pow in the back bowls and backcountry should remain nice and dry.

P.S.- sun came up. Looks pretty stormy out there still- the lake effect may still be in effect...

Got my fingers crossed for some snow. I'll be at Deer Valley tomorrow. At this point, I'm glad they got some even if it was only a few inches. The high pressure that's been up here in the PNW is supposed to start breaking down this weekend, and hopefully that will open the flood gates for some storms later next week in UT.

I'll wash my car.

ha - the powder alert from ALta said they got 11. Kind of like a flurry for them
post #18 of 18
THe NOAA link for SLC shows a 20-40% chance of measurable precipitation from Wed night thru Saturday. That is not very encouraging, but it looks like the resorts get the lake effect "flurries" so keep your fingers crossed. Alta site shows 1" last night.
