We are seeking a passionate individual to join us as Executive Director
of the nonprofit Utah Avalanche Center.
Skies are overcast.
Winds are from the west-southwest, blowing 15-20mph with gusts to 30mph. Along the highest ridgelines, anemometers are spinning 25-30mph with gusts to 40mph.
Mountain temperatures are in the single digits to low teens.
We recorded just a trace of new snow overnight and storm totals over the weekend are roughly 8-14", comprising a little over an inch of snow-water-equivalent. Strong winds from the northwest and particularly the southwest have wreaked havoc on the riding conditions and likely left a thin layer of dust , buried now about a foot down.
For today, we'll have light snowfall that may add up to an additional 2-4". Winds will blow from the west at 20-25mph. Mountain temperatures will remain cold in the single digits and low teens. The week looks unsettled and messy with a couple weak disturbances that may offer an inch of snow here and there.

Ski area avalanche teams reported triggering shallow soft slabs of wind drifted snow with ski cuts and explosives along the higher elevations. Smaller soft slabs were triggered in the mid-elevations.
