April Showers

After a so-so snow year and a long warm weather cycle, we had all but given up on skiing for the year. We were in full on bike mode, planning trips to Moab and getting into spinning shape. Then a spring storm cycle rolled in. At first, I dismissed it as if Winter were trying to beg my forgiveness like a lover who had cheated, offering a cheap bouquet of after-thought snow. But the storms started coming back to back until before we knew it, we had received 150 inches (12.5 FEET) of fresh Utah powder in under two weeks. With action like that, Spring had been officially postponed and we were able to get a few tremendous days in at The Canyons, Brighton, and Snowbird. While we may have gotten it out of our systems this past weekend, we have but one more weekend to enjoy skiing in Park City before the resorts close. And with a brand new storm cycle engulfing Utah and already dropping 6-12 inches, Winter is back on, sucka.
