Many ski areas are now closed to uphill travel in order to prepare for winter operations. Resort uphill travel policies can be found HERE.
Skies are clear. Winds are light from the southwest. Mountain temperatures are in the low 20s. A weak storm will pass to the south of us today and we'll see partly cloudy skies and light veering winds to the north. Temps will be in the mid-20s. Dry, cool and stable conditions are on tap for the week.
The GOOD NEWS is that coverage is decent for this time of year and riding conditions on the northerly aspects are fair to good. Snow depths are 1-2' in the Provo mountains but solar aspects will be crusted this morning and some of the open and exposed terrain will have some wind damage.
No avalanche activity was reported from the backcountry yesterday. That said, one party encountered avalanche conditions they did not like and wisely turned around. I applaud this good decision making.
