Blower Pow Buries Alta

When the canyon closed down, these lucky bastards had the deeps to themselves

It was a few days to remember this Wednesday through Friday at Alta. It started with 14 inches overnight, a little dense, but the perfect solution to the several days without snow. Then we indulged in two days of incredible blower. The first day, the morning report said 10 inches, but it was really about 20. The second day was a repeat—as deep as it gets—cold temps, deep and windy up high, noticeably deeper down low. To top it off, the canyon closed during the day for for five hours and it was country club at Alta and Snowbird. —Lee Cohen
