Park City, UT - (News Release) - The spring ski season at The Canyons Resort is off to a stellar start with a series of snow storms that have brought the resort's mid-mountain base depth to over 100 inches! The resort's snow depth is measured at approximately 8,700 feet in elevation.
"This is the spring weather we all hope for in Utah, said Scott Pierpont, President of The Canyons Resort.
"Skiing in thigh-deep powder on March 10th pretty much says it all. I may have had my best powder day of the year this week, he added.
The Canyons has surpassed snow totals for this time last year, and there are more snow cycles in the forecast for March. The National Weather Service is predicting snow each day through Monday, March 13.
The 2005/2006 Season at The Canyons Resort has been a record-breaking year on several fronts in addition to snowfall. In late December, Utah's largest resort had its busiest day on record, and season pass sales also hit new highs.
