Alta and Snowbird Closed Due to Too Much Snow

A post shared by Alta Ski Area (@altaskiarea) on

Nope, that’s not a joke. Up to five inches of snow an hour fell in the Wasatch on Monday, forcing Alta and Snowbird to close early due too much snow and high avalanche risk. Storm totals reached upwards of two feet. A natural avalanche ran in the White Pine area of Little Cottonwood Canyon, forcing a road closure to remove debris and continue mitigation work. Skiers and snowboarders were forced to remain up the canyon and indoors until 6 p.m. before heading down.

Snowbird tweeted a message warning anyone “outdoors at the resort, please proceed to the nearest building and stay inside until interlodge restrictions have been lifted. DO NOT STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE.” Big Cottonwood was opening and closing throughout the afternoon causing the typical Wasatch traffic nightmare.

Both LCC and BCC have reopened to normal traffic as of 1/22. Avalanche risk is still rated High in the Salt Lake, Provo, Skyline, Uinta, and Moab areas, with a considerable rating in the Ogden, Logan and Abajo zones. 

You gotta love mother nature..she is providing an unbelievable ski year in the West 2018/2019…and Europe!

It’s really a disappointment for every snow lovershow to stop pop ups . One of the most adventurous game is closed due to the bad weather condition is really shocking for the snow lovers. All are praying for the new arrangements which will reopen the game in full sprit.

Travis Rice’s Insane POV from Kings and Queens of Corbet’s

Travis Rice’s Insane POV from Kings and Queens of Corbet’s

Of course, Travis Rice was going to put on a show at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s—Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is his backyard after all. Launching into the infamous couloir, Rice went HUGE by not only airing Corbet’s but also the subsequent kickers at the bottom. All in all, it was an absolute dream ride. If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to go full send into Corbet’s, here’s your chance. Rice just dropped the POV from his first run and it’s insane. RELATED: Watch the 2019 Kings

Just when you thought Karl Fostvedt couldn't get any crazier, he decided to hit Corbet's SWITCH. Yeah, and he stomped it. But was it enough to maintain his reign as king of Corbet's? Tough to tell considering the equally impressive runs from Travis Rice and Blaine Gallivan. For now, we'll wait in suspense until the winners are announced this Saturday.

Travis Rice’s run at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s 2019 might have been some of the finest snowboarding we’ve ever seen, but the real hero was no doubt Trevor Kennison, who chucked it off the lip aboard his sit-ski. Kennison suffered a life-changing snowboarding injury in 2014 when he crashed on a jump in the backcountry of Vail Pass, Colorado, landing on his back. He has worked with the High Fives Foundation ever since, and competed in the ski race events with dreams of entering the 2022
