Good morning! This is Alta’s snow report at 10:15am on Monday, January 28th.
Well, we've fallen victim to the paradox of Alta, skiers. We all wish for lots of snow, really deep snow to freshen things up and well, we got it. So much in fact that the road into the canyon has been closed for the day due to avalanche danger. In addition, the ski area will remain closed today for similar reasons. Although last night's forecast called for 4-8" overnight, we ended up with over 16". That new snow fell on top of 9" of new yesterday making for a considerable amount of snow. To make the mountain safe for everyone, we will remain closed while professional crews work out the danger. Last night’s new snow now makes total snowfall this season 310" and settled snow at mid-mountain now stands at 95".
Right now in Alta, it is snowing hard, winds are moderate out of the South and it’s 18 degrees here, at base.
Today’s forecast calls for another 4-8" possible, winds will be moderate to strong out of the Southwest and our high temperature right around 20 degrees. Tonight, 1-4" possible as snow decreases to flurries. Winds will gradually back down into the light range and become more Northerly and our low temperature near 10 degrees. The extended forecast calls for flurries into Tuesday with unsettled weather the rest of the week with more snow a possibility during that period.
The road into the Canyon is currently closed for avalanche control work. At this time, due to extremely heavy snow in the canyon and the results of avalanche control work, the road is not expected to open today. Crews will gather this afternoon to conduct more work and reevaluate the road but at this time, it is not advised that you wait for an opening. If you are an employee of the ski area, you are encouraged to contact you supervisor to get further instructions. This message will be update as we receive more information.
