leaving for utah a week from tomorrow. it will be the second trip out there this season and the 5th in the last 3 seasons. i hope we arrive to utah the way we left it tons and tons of snow. we were there from christmas to new years when the huge storm rolled through and there was sooooo much powder. lots of the locals say that it was the best storm in over a century. for those of you going that dont have much powder experience therez plenty of groomers out there for you.
yall have a great trip and if you are there between march 6 to 13 ill be out there.

i am here, safely ensconced in Sandy (SLC), with its highest marriage rate in the nation (79% of adults) and its youngest median age (22). Yes the land of suburban strip malls stares bleakly back at me from my hotel window...

BUT it has been snowing non-stop in the city, although the result seems to be limited accummulation. In the mountains it's a different story -- snow accumulation totals for the WEEK are approaching the 50-60 inch mark by sun/mon if the weather pattern holds

Yes -- that's 60 INCHES of fresh snow! Snow totals for some are cresting 425 inches for the year with bases above 125 inches. They may have snow into JULY (it was suggested to me July 4 wasn't completely unrealistic)

Tomorrow is Day 1. Up on the bus -- now the big question, Alta, Snowbird, Brighton or Solitude?

I am slightly favoring Brighton or Snowbird for Day 1. If I were a really accomplished powder skier, I'd probably hit Alta first as they favor it la natural. But I am not so I need the cruch of a few groomed trails to see me through.

If you are looking for Winter, he's here. Maybe he converted?
