Spring Storm Dumps Late Season Pow

Winter 2017 just doesn’t want to quit. It’s already been one of the best seasons in recent memory with places like Tahoe, Mammoth, the PNW, Colorado, Utah and beyond all receiving ridiculous amounts of snow this season. And now, despite only a few resorts still being open, a late season stormed rolled through and dropped snow in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and California.

As far as resorts that are still open, Arapahoe Basin in Colorado was the big winner of this storm. They received 21” in the last three days. Given this amount of late season snow, they were able to open the Pallavicini chair. This chair had previously been closed for the spring, but once it opened, it was deep, and prime for the pillaging.

Snowbird also received a nice fresh dusting, and spring condition have been all-time at the only open resort in Utah.

Mammoth and Squaw are both still spinning their lifts in California, and though they only received 1-4” this past storm, the coverage is still insane and spring conditions are as good they get.

There’s also still plenty of snow in the backcountry. Have you been getting it? Where are you riding this late spring? Let us know in the comments.
