Deep Powder at Wildcat

Expecting to find the few inches on the doorstep yesterday morning your correspondent was confronted with 3+ feet. Digging out this morning to catch the first Alta chairs took longer than expected. Arriving at Wildcat and Collins he was confronted with several hundred likeminded first chair powder addicts.

Two weeks into 2017 and snowfall amounts are looking good. The holiday crowds have gone for the moment, leaving the mountains congestion free. Well, perhaps congestion preferable is more accurate, at least during weekdays.

From Canyon Blog to you and yours, a Merry Christmas and most joyous New Year!

The POW has arrived, just in time for Santa. Feet expected in the next 36 hours. So don't delay, order your flight before midnight tonight!

And just to add flavor...
