Park City Gets 24 Inches in 24 Hours


PARK CITY, Utah, Feb. 26 2004 -- Park City Mountain Resort has received more than 24 inches in 24 hours bringing the season's total snowfall to 382 - well over the resort's average annual snowfall of 350 inches.

"This is the biggest 24 hour snowfall total we've had since Christmas," said Julie Hopkins, director of marketing and sales for the Resort. "The season kicked off one week early due to abundant early season snow, and it keeps coming. The snowstorm positions us well to finish the remaining six weeks of the season with great conditions."

The Resort received more than 50 inches of snow before opening day, November 14. Holiday snow storms brought six feet of Utah's famous powder to the Resort over Christmas. The Weatherbank forecasts an additional two to three feet of snow for the weekend.
