In 24 hours, the Wasatch went from some of the worst skiing of the season, to the best, and then back again. A much needed storm finally rolled in, but was accompanied by warming temps, howling winds and a touch of rain, which created a zipper crust all over. Polly described it as “skiing through creme brulee.”
Then the temps dropped and the storm kicked in again, this time delivering another 12″ or so, but also with some very high ridgetop winds, which sent us into more sheltered terrain.
Now it is back to a light rain at 7,100′ in Park City. Instead of “You should have been here yesterday.” it’s more like, you should have been here an hour ago.
