Alta's New Opening Date: December 2

Alta Lodge deck November 21
Mother Nature is finally shifting gears! We had a storm come in last week, more snow last evening and it is snowing now.  With a change in the weather pattern, more storms are coming in the next couple of weeks and we are expecting "winter as usual" at Alta.  An 8,600 foot elevation certainly plays to our advantage!

To get excited for your Alta ski vacation, you may be interested in checking some of our favorite weather resources. The national weather service has a Cottonwood Canyons forecast that is good for a 24 hour period.  Their weather synopsis late this afternoon showed:
 
.Winter Weather Advisory in Effect Until 4am Tuesday...
A pacific storm system will cross the area this evening, before moving east later tonight. High pressure will follow Tuesday, with another system expected Wednesday afternoon and evening
.

A couple of other local sources popular with skiers:
Professor Powder's Blog  Wasatch Weather Weenies is the product of University of Utah's meteorologist Jim Steenburgh, author "Secrets of the Greatest Snow on Earth".

The Wasatch Snow Forecast blog is a fun one to follow, especially today as Evan tells us about Storms #1, #2, #3 & #4...how's that for some promising news?

Now you've got some resources to check, you'll have a better idea of what's happening with the weather in Alta and the Cottonwood Canyons.
