Thanks to recent snow storms, the ski and snowboard conditions are improving in Utah. So far we have received 200 inches of snow this season, around half of what we had at this time last year (380 inches). It looks like we will be having some more unsettled weather in the coming weeks, which should bring some more snow to the Wasatch. Backcountry skiing and snowboarding conditions have been quite good as of late, although the avalanche hazard remains high in most of the upper elevation terrain. Wasatch Powderbird Guides has been heliskiing all over the range, from the Bountiful Sessions Mountains down to the Cascade Mountains above Provo, finding high quality powder snow.
