Having received only 4 inches of snow in October and early November, we were off to a slow start at Alta Ski Area. Opening day was pushed back two weeks while we waited for the snow to fall. And, as always, Mother Nature delivered, dropping 70 inches of snowfall during the last two weeks of November. Anyone who visited Alta this winter knows it kept falling. There were 14 days with at least a foot of snow, two storms over 50 inches and one at 88.5 inches. January 23rd was the deepest day of the year with 26 inches, in a very snowy month – January’s snowfall was over 158 inches or 13 feet.
