Over 270" (6 meters) of Utah powder has fallen since the start of the season.
Talk about an unreal amount of snow, this season has been shaping up to be the best on record. Many have said that it's never dumped this much before Thanksgiving which has meant the building of a solid base for the rest of the season.

The three major storms have caused havoc with avalanche control but the reward is more than justified when you take some fresh lines off Tigertail and you're surrounded only by the noise of your gear swishing beneath you.

Temperatures recently have plummeted to a chilly -22c even during the middle of the day, but, the sun has been shining and the now most of the holiday guests have headed home so the mountain is very quiet.

Another small storm is expected this weekend which should make for awesome conditions in the coming weeks.
