Powday Monday Report

A look at the Weekend Winners & Next Week’s Place to Be


The Winners of the weekend’s big snow were in Utah and New England!  Utah is really starting off strong.  If I had to pick my place to be right now, it’s Utah.  Here in Northern Vermont, we have certainly had snow accumulation, but it is DENSE.  I prefer a bit more pow-pow so let’s talk Solitude Mountain Resort in Utah for our drool report this week.


Saturday and Sunday really packed a punch with 15 and 14 inches of snow reported.  

There may not be a ton of terrain open yet but, it’s early season and 29 inches of storm total is a great start for base development.  

This resort is a mere 13 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon from Salt Lake City.   (34 from the SLC International Airport).   This is an IKON resort but if you live in the area and can get weekdays off, I would check out their weekday season pass deals.

This region of Utah is known for beautiful terrain, family friendly resorts, and of course epic powder days.  Last Year was a banner year but if Solitude gets even half of last year’s snow totals, you are in for a great vacation.  


Next Week’s Powder

New England has been blessed with wonderful early season snow but, will it get more this coming weekend?  Smuggler’s Notch in Vermont has been putting up some impressive numbers.  Yesterday it received 11 inches of new snow.  However, a warm front is moving in over the east that might last into early next weekend.

The Northwest is where next week’s snow action will be ripe.  Schweitzer Mountain Resort in Idaho should start to see the snow fall on Thursday as it continues on the daily through the weekend.  

Unfortunately, this Tuesday the mountain is expecting substantial rain and will be closed temporarily.  Yet, I have high hopes that this mountain will make a comeback with its snowy 7 day outlook.  

This area of Idaho is unbelievably stunning with big lakes, a gorgeous town of Sandpoint nearby, and the fact that is a lesser known destination (for those who prefer uncrowded trails).
