(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Skiers take turns at Deer Valley, on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022. The resort is on the verge of breaking its all-time snowfall record.

Ski resorts all over Utah have been breaking snowfall records all season.

Add Deer Valley to that list now.

The resort reported receiving 20 inches of new snow over the past 72 hours, pushing it past its season snowfall record.

As of Thursday morning, Deer Valley has amassed 485 inches of snow this season, the resort reported. The previous record was 484 inches and was reached in the 2016-17 season.

While rain has been coming down in the Salt Lake valley this week, the mountains started receiving an increased amount of snow starting Tuesday evening. The National Weather Service reported that Utah mountain areas should be getting snow through Thursday morning.

The NWS also reported that Utah tied its statewide record for snow water equivalent — the amount of water available in snow — of 23.1 inches on Wednesday. That number should go up in the coming days, the weather service said.

This has been a banner year for Utah ski resorts. Less than two weeks ago, Alta and Brighton each passed the 600-Inch threshold. As of Tuesday, Brighton has reached 683 inches this season, while Alta is up to 670 inches, per SnoCountry.com. Snowbird and Solitude reports are up to 613 and 610 inches, respectively.
