According to Ski Utah, we’re still about 4 weeks away from most ski resorts opening up out there. But, with the onset of another winter storm in the works, one can hope the opening dates might be pushed to an earlier date…maybe?? Here’s the forecast for colder wather brought to you by the Salt Lake Tribune:

“Another Pacific storm system promises to make Utah chillier and wetter as it rumbles southward. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for locations above 8,000 feet. As much as 8 inches of snow is expected in northern Utah mountains through noon today, said forecaster Linda Cheng. In the valleys, rain is expected to be heaviest in Wasatch, Summit, Salt Lake, Utah and Tooele counties, where some areas might see an inch before the storm moves south. The weekend’s unusually balmy temperatures will become a fond memory over the next few days…”
