There will be a traffic delay Monday, 6/21 while we escort tankers up the canyon for Albion Summer Road dust control. They're large and SLOW. Expect it to take about 45 minutes.
As of today, Snowbird is closed for skiing & riding for the 2020-21 winter season. Uphill travel will not be permitted until after our teams finish working on the mountain.
Heads up, all lifts on a 10 minute lightening hold. Mineral Basin is closed for the day.
With warm temps in the forecast, our team is assessing conditions daily to determine how long we can be skiing & riding. There is a chance this weekend may be our last for winter operations. Stay tuned to for updates.

I was just looking at HRRR forecasted radar (available via app to all-access members) and it depicts showers lingering for much of the day around Wasatch Front. Could today be a day of steady rain for SLC area?
Looking at precip totals yesterday, it seems like there's a wide swatch essentially from BCC, through Millcreek, up into the east side of SLC (Sugarhouse up to University, and over to downtown and avenues) that saw >1" of precip with as much as 1.75" in spots.
7:45am: It's been raining light to moderate at my place for the past hour. These showers continue to spread throughout the SL Valley this morning. Very atypical of a summer morning in these parts and I love it!
The rain is generally winding down around the SLC area. However, there are additional storms in southern Utah County heading north. Will they hold together enough to bring more rain? I don’t know. I don’t intend to stay awake long enough to find out .
Dane, he needs an answer.
@Dane_Harrington @NWSSaltLakeCity @WasatchSnow @UDOTTRAFFIC Hi Dane, do I have your permission to show this video to my wife?

The Utah Avalanche Center keeps you on top of the Greatest Snow on Earth instead of being buried beneath it.
(4/17/20) Heads up - East winds are making wind slab avalanches reactive in the central Wasatch. The forecast didn’t mention winds this morning but reports of wind slabs mean you can now likely trigger wind drifted slopes at the upper elevations. Pic: East Silver Fork 4/15 (fink)
As winds continue to decrease and our most recent Wasatch downslope windstorm ends, here are some answers and insights into the recent increase in downslope windstorms over the past 8 months.
New snow amounts are approaching a foot and new snow avalanches are being triggered as loose snow and as some soft slab avys. #utwx #utavy
Largest storms recorded at Alta Guard since 1964 ranked by snow and by water. Charts from @UDOTavy and @saurerpantz #utwx
A reminder to please NEVER park in designated avalanche zones. With spring storms and rapid warming, you never know when we may need to shut things down for a few hours for control work or rescue operations. @MarshalMike1 and @UPDSL will be helping with enforcement.
