Snow, rain, wind, snow in that order So of course the two feet-ish of early-December snow is only a precursor to rain and more rain and then winds enough to blow a house in from Kansas. You have to get it while it’s here, because too too soon it’s gone. Plattekill went from it’s earliest opening ever with 100 percent coverage on Dec. 7 to not open at all last weekend.
I was at The Bird for a 67” inch storm that dumped its goodness for three days. Every night was interlodge, and on the third LCC road closed. Oh paradise thy name is Snowbird on the days Little Cottonwood Canyon road closes, to wake to 105 rounds and ski bottomless powder suspended in a medium softer than water floating down the mountain. Only The Sizzlers Know. You could ask Kurt, Disco Dave, Jonesie for the secrets but, they won’t tell! You could tuck in behind but you better turn you skis with your legs, not your mouth.
