Ripped from the Utah Avalanche Center:
We looked at snow numbers yesterday from the Alta Guard Station and found that this season has even less snow for this time of year than the previous record low snow season of 1976-77. We have a measly 283 inches so far and if we get less than 30 inches between now and the end of April, we will officially break the over-60-year record for the least amount of snow in a season. Wow! So if this seems like a horrible winter it's because it IS.

I guess my take is if this is the worst winter ever in Utah then I chose a pretty rad place to shred.  For crying out loud we still got almost 30 feet of snow!  Yeah the beginning of the season was tough but if you stuck it out there were plenty of rad days to be had.  Besides today was blower, where were you? Did you already give up on winter?  Winter is what you make it.  Plenty of days still put a huge smile on my face and you know what, we still have plenty more to come.  I have no doubt Snowbird will stay open until end of May.  Worst winter ever and we will still be slashing into May!
