Storm pushes snow cover in Utah to average


Hurricanes that have made landfall in Utah in recent weeks have brought every inch of snow to the valleys. But more importantly, they’ve made a positive contribution to the water the state will need when winter gives way to spring.

Snow and ice across the state were higher than usual on Saturday, according to Utah Division of the Natural Resources Conservation Service. That is a welcome sign for a state that is still going through a severe drought.

The most recent map of Utah from the NRCS shows that the state is above 100% snow and ice in most areas. For example, the area around Salt Lake City stands at 108% of the average.

Ski resorts in Utah can still use more snow. On Sunday, Park City Mountain Resort reports 29 out of 43 elevators are open and Snowbird says 11 out of 13 elevators are running. Storm pushes snow cover in Utah to average
