April Powder--no fooling!

--last week
Yesterday was epic powder skiing from all the Alta photos around the web and today is even better with cold temperatures and very dry powder. A rather unusual phenomena in April but non the less it makes for great skiing.  Professor Jim Steenburgh gives us a good description of things on his blog Wasatch Weather Weenies. We were in the throngs of a high pressure system earlier in the season, spring skiing last week and now towards the end of the season, a low pressure system is bringing us more snow, bringing the Alta base to 126 inches!  If you didn't know better, you would like think today was mid-January. So it looks like we will keep getting more snow through the weekend and after that, well there's two more weeks of spring skiing, which can mean just about anything--powder, corn...fun!
