Pre-"frontal" winds were the main event yesterday, with a fair bit of drifting in the mid to high elevations. See Kory Davis's video below. The weak front had little to show in the way of precipitation, but temps did drop into the upper teens and low 20s and the winds veered northwesterly. They're now blowing 10-15mph with gusts to 25. Snow stakes sit at 25-35". With a week or so since our last snowfall, the snow conditions are a bit rough around the edges. Sun crusts and wind effect are found on southerly and in the exposed terrain; however soft settled powder and "loud powder" (ie: surface hoar) can still be found in the shady sheltered terrain.
Tomorrow's quick hitter at the very least will sweep the smog out of the valleys and probably produce 4-8" of true powder for the mountains. It's a sharp looking cold front with mountain temps dropping to the upper single digits and a wind shift to the northwest. Post-frontal winds, however, look to remain moderate to strong until evening.
Ski area control teams along the Ogden skyline were able to trigger a few hard wind slabs in steep wind drifted terrain yesterday. These should be increasingly stubborn but drifts should continue to be avoided today.
