Short Range Forecast Discussion

Some clouds and mostly light showers across northern Utah today, and mainly southern Utah tonight through Saturday/ Clearing late Saturday/ Mostly sunny Monday and Tuesday

(Check out our US snow pack - snow depth - snow temperature - new snow - etc. maps!)

Forecast updated for Friday, April 18, 2014

A low pressure system is moving across mainly the northwest US today, causing some showers mainly across northern Utah, then another low pressure system (weak and warmer) moves in and affects mainly southern Utah with showers tonight through Saturday. We do not expect much from either of these systems. High snow levels are expected, in the 9,00+ foot range. Skies clear as low pressure moves out Saturday night (mostly sunny on Sunday), then Monday looks mostly sunny and warmer, in advance of a cold Pacific low that will be developing. Snow moves in on Tuesday and Wednesday from a possibly big storm. Please be sure to log-in and favorite your resort forecasts so you save time. CM

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 23 April to 03 May, 2014 - Another low pressure system moves in next Tuesday through Friday (3+ days or so between storms) with potential snowfall, and potentially significant for any area as it may track south also. We may see this followed by high pressure ridging aloft next Saturday and for a few+ days (26th on). Winter is not over yet for the Utah high country, but it seems to be tapering off, in general. CM

Longer Range Outlook

As of now, April 2014, we are continuing to be affected by an ENSO-Neutral, or La Nada Sea Surface Temperature pattern across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific (SSTs near to slightly below average).

Current SST pattern- La Nada

The larger time-scale SST pattern in place right now is a cool phase PDO, or negative PDO, which stands for Pacific Decadal Oscillation. This is a more long term pattern (decades), and it has made any recent years El Nino SST patterns weaker.

We expect the ENSO Neutral, or La Nada pattern (almost a La Nina) to continue, and in the last 30 days we have seen more of a La Nina pattern develop with colder SST's along the eastern Equatorial Pacific and even the region 3.4 always referred to, though less so in 3.4. We are not seeing the trend toward El Nino yet.

Since we are seeing an actual cooling of the eastern Equatorial Pacific in the last month, and not much change in the 3.4 region, we expect this to not bode well for a shift out of a La Nada pattern, yet. If we start to see warming in the region mentioned, then we expect a potential strengthening jet stream across the Pacific, and increased moisture in general for Pacific storms as they move in more directly off the Pacific. We will keep this outlook updated as more information becomes available.

From deep powder bowls to long groomed runs, gentle beginner slopes to steep chutes, four world-class terrain parks and the 2002 Olympic Superpipe, Park City Mountain Resort has something for everyone. We have a wide selection of terrain from beginner to expert, allowing the whole family to ski what they want when they want. With our Fast Tracks pass, free with all 5+ multi-day tickets, it's easier to get more skiing and riding in. This special pass allows the holder access to express lanes at our most popular lifts. We continue to host Olympic champions. The Resort kicks off this season with the Roxy Chicken Jam, the first all-female slopestyle competition on December 16-17, 2005. America's best riders will compete in the world-famous Eagle Superpipe during the World Superpipe Championships (March 11-12, 2006). With 3,300 acres of incredibly varied terrain, you’ll definitely find runs that fit your skiing or snowboarding style. You will also discover something more intangible and satisfying than what you see on a trail map. It’s the feeling of being on top of the world in a majestic natural setting where the spirit is set free from the everyday. It’s the sense of living life fully, being totally in the moment, where you’re exhilarated one minute and relaxed and in tune with nature the next. In other words, you’ll feel awakened in a way you’ll remember forever.
