Unexpected Storm Dumps 12″ at Brian Head

Posted on

Not that it opened any new terrain, but the 12″ will certainly help. Totally unexpected storm. Started snowing about 2PM as we were coming off the mountain and never let up.
Today is straight up bluebird, but the scary part is it is a foot of powder over plenty of rocks. I didn’t hit any rocks on the man-made packed areas but skiing blues and greens on man-made snow is only fun for a little bit unless you are 5.
Nonetheless, a few more storms like this and the resort will be ready to rock for Christmas.
Bad news for Utah folks down here is the resort is closing all but two lifts on weekdays until Christmas. Can’t blame them because yesterday was absolutely dead for a holiday weekend on a Saturday. I hope things pick up. Damned economy.
