A few of the most dedicated diehards have been willing to seek out the remnants of last season’s record snowfall, hiking miles for a few moments of wintry bliss in the summer sun.
For everyone else, Monday offered a reminder that the greatest snow on earth will soon be making its way to you.
Snowbird, Alta and Solitude were among the Utah ski resorts proudly showing off fresh coats of snow this week, as a Labor Day storm hit northern Utah.
While the storms brought rainfall to most of the Wasatch Front, the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City cautioned people venturing above 10,000 feet to be prepared for winter-like conditions.
Last season, Alta reported more snowfall than any other resort in North America: 903 inches. Five other Utah resorts broke their own snow records.
If Utah is in for an encore performance this season, however, it may have to wait a while longer. Temperatures were expected to return to the mid-to-high 80s this week in the Salt Lake Valley, according to the NWS forecast.
