The warm temperatures after the epic snowfall during the previous 5-6 days, created a “stale icing” type snow condition anywhere the mountain was not groomed.  There was a light crust on top of anywhere up to […]

ShareTweet Today mother nature delivered BIG TIME.  It took two tries to get up the canyon road.  Driving up the road around 10am, the road wasn’t very snow covered at the bottom and there wasn’t much snow down in Sandy at the base of the canyon. It didn’t take long for the roads to get […]

ShareTweet As the wind picked up last night (April 27th) and gusts of up to 60 miles an hour ripped through the canyon, the snow began to fall.  The end of April is a bit late in the season to expect a powder day but mother nature was feeling generous and delivered a nice storm […]
