Surprisingly Abundant Powder at SnowbirdKendall Card - December 6, 2008 at 3:54PM
A friend called after skiing at Snowbird today and I couldn't help but catch a sense of enthusiasm in his voice. He was going on and on about the surprisingly good powder and how abundant it was despite what has seemed to be a lack of snow.Perspectives are always different when you're in the Salt Lake Valley where it may only snow an inch or less.Case in point: This last storm came through but didn't produce any measurable snow in the valley. However, Snowbird received over 8", bringing the annual snowfall this season to over 6 feet!This image from Snowbird sums up just how good it was yesterday and today.There are 6 lifts and 75% of the mountain open. Snowbird currently offers an early season lift ticket price of $62. If you get up there this week, comment here and let us know how the experience was for you.
