SNOW!!! Early Storm Blankets Utah Mountains

September 30 may seem a surprising date for a snowstorm, but yesterday the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains were blanketed by a beautiful layer of the kind of stuff that is worshipped by winter sports enthusiasts everywhere:  fresh powdery snow!!

It’s a wee bit early to start the official ski season but it sure is inspiring us locals to begin pulling out our gear to gaze at it longingly…… and it sure does excite ski and snowboard devotees around the country and around the world who know that Utah powder is beyond compare.
