Powder Alert Issued for Utah

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on January 6, 2009 11:00 am

A statewide Powder Alert has been issued in Utah.  Skiers and boarders are advised of the possible inhalation of powder due to "face shots."  The alert will be in effect until the weekend, as a series of storms are expected to hammer Utah today, Wednesday, and Friday.  Blue sky powder days are scheduled for Thursday for the locals and the weekend for the rest of us.

Fresh snow accumulation in the past 48 hours has been in the one to two foot range, but these totals are indeed premature with Mother Nature scheduling three more days of dumpage this week.  Helping the public deal with the alert, Ski Utah has slashed prices on lodging, including deals on free skiing for those heeding the call of the Powder Alert.
