Alta opened for the season last Friday and a storm moved into the area on Saturday, depositing so
much snow that Alta did not open on Sunday! There is a 40-inch base now and the Thanksgiving weekend is off to a great start with beautiful sunny days in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. All reports from skiers say the conditions are great and the new Corkscrew run is a nice improvement. After the holiday weekend the weather will change (of course!) and we’ll be looking at cooler temperatures with more snow moving into the area. If you can plan a last minute escape to ski, follow the weather on a web site a lot of locals use and plan your powder trip before the next holiday when it is quiet and there’s a good chance to get some faceshots!
