Park City sees first snow of the season, sort of

Wednesday morning, Park City woke to a chill in the air, clouds in the sky – and snow in the mountains.

Yes, with Labor Day cookouts still fresh in residents’ memories, Park City saw its first snowfall of the season, albeit not at a low enough elevation to be visible from the lower elevations.

Park City Mountain Resort shared photos taken at Jupiter Bowl.

Brighton Resort, too, reported snowfall this morning that, if you squinted, almost looked skiable.

Alta Resort celebrated its first snow of the season, as well.

For winter enthusiasts, the snow is certainly exciting, but alas, it appears it will be short-lived – temperatures are expected to rise over the weekend into the mid- to high-70s, with overnight lows above 40.  Park City will have to wait a while longer for snow to fall in the city proper.

If this year is anything like 2018, however, the wait may not be long. Park City saw nearly a foot of snowfall Oct. 10 last year, so, maybe it’s not a bad time for Parkites to get the snow shovel handy after all.
