Snowbird's snow cam

The marker ends at 18" and above that there's a huge "Snowbird" logo, it has to be at least 24" tall, but it's buried this morning...

I saw that also this morning. I checked the nws radar and the lake effect machine is kicking in high gear. Oh if I lived in salt lake, I could be skiing powder right now! If only...

Yup, the lake effect is in high gear. I had 8" of snow overnight at my house, but only a few miles down I-15 around the point of the mountain ( where I work ) and away from the lake effect there's only about an inch on the ground.

Yep - definitely narrow bands of heavy lake effect.

Driving in from the north, there was nothing until about N. Salt Lake, then heavy snow. Looks like the persistent lake effect will continue through the day - directly clobbering LCC/BCC. Snowbird is reporting 31" so far.

Just got an update from someone at the top of Alta - he inserted a 45 inch probe and it didn't hit bottom...exciting to say the least

They just updated alta's website. Apparently, there is 37 inches of new snow! Here is a pic from the base. Just Crazy!

If I'm not living in SLC by the end of 2025... I'm gonna... I'm gonna...

Uh yeah I'm gonna live in SLC when I grow up. Period. And then I'm going to shred some Utah pow pow whenever that insane amount of snow drops... or more just like whenever that snow drops!

One sweet Alta pic tho

Alta and Snowbird need to open. Last year they opened with a lot less snow than this.

Darn Lake effect, missed me completely. So will Alta allow uphill traffic? Will they do Avalanche control work? I probably couldn't get down there till Friday, will it be all skied up by then? That picture is juicy.

Thanks,

JF

Love it! It is about time, and it looks like it has come down hard. Wish I was there right now. Just another month or so.

I know. Not fair!

Although I do have a good friend in SLC that I should probably visit sometime soon.

Yeah - it's amazing what that big old salty body of water can do for snowfall when the conditions are right.

Thanks Josh, are you back in town? I just thought they may close access to do AC work, that looks like the kind of snow that could cause problems. It has also been pretty windy today.

Well, the lake effect machine finally tapered off and ended late afternoon today.
The storm total at Alta was 46" and probably close for Snowbird. Not a bad start to the season

RE: P90x

skicougar - have you ever done it? Great workout - on my second round. I'm actually planning my own version in a few weeks with the Plyo masters routine.

You get out of it what you put in I find (for those that finish and take it serious). A good choice for those of us who don't have 1000s of dollars, fancy equipment or tons of time to spend at a gym.

Not true...Park City got close to 2 feet out of this storm and the canyons 16". I know it's not 4 feet but it's a good start none the less. I got 12" in Pinebrook.
