Park City, UT Jan. 6, 2005 - The Canyons Resort continues to get pummeled with snow asanother severe weather cycle moves across Utah. Utah's newest and largest resort has received over a foot of fresh powder in the past day. "We are thrilled with this forecast and know that our guests are getting what theycame for," said Scott Pierpont, President of The Canyons. "If you've beenskiing or snowboarding here this past week and haven't had a good time, it'stime for you to find a new sport," laughed Pierpont.
The National Weather Service is predicting snow showers for the next weekwith accumulations of at least another foot. Cooler temperatures combinedwith this precipitation means light, fluffy Utah powder.
The Canyons has 137 trails open today (the most in Utah), accessed by 16lifts over 8 mountains. Mid-mountain snow depth is now 76 inches, with anearly 100-inch base at the summit of Ninety Nine 90. For the most recentsnow totals, click on this link: http://www.thecanyons.com/snow.html.
