Thursday, November 15th was the scheduled opening day 2007 at Alta…but it ain’t happenin. October came in strong and hard (in fact I skied Gunsight to lower Greely Oct 21st, my Mother’s Birthday…and it was deep and fluffy), but we’ve been shut out practically this month so far. It’s how it goes in the Wasatch. But at anytime we can have 100 inches in 100 hours once again.
Here’s the note on the Alta.com homepage:
“Our optimism for a November 15th opening hasn’t been supported by Mother Nature. Our first storm in 2 weeks gave us 5 inches of snow and cooler temperatures so we can now make snow at night. Pray for another storm or two. We’ll open as soon as conditions allow. Keep checking alta.com for updates.”
