SALT LAKE CITY, UT (February 24, 2017) – Over the past three days Utah received a healthy refill of The Greatest Snow on Earth. After a week or so of warmer weather, "a cold unstable northwest flow brought snow to favored areas, specifically the Central Wasatch, over the last three days, according to Ski Utah's Weather Forecaster Evan Thayer of Wasatch Snow Forecast. With storm totals reaching 44" (Close to 4 feet), Brighton Resort, surpassed their annual average snowfall (500") with this storm, and now has a total 514 inches for the 2016-17 season.

"This season Mother Nature has already been so good to us with nine Utah resorts reporting well above a 100 inch base," says Nathan Rafferty, CEO/President of Ski Utah. "We are looking forward to a long healthy season with March, historically one of Utah's snowiest months, right around the corner."
