So Much Snow!

With Over 300" of Snow Summit County Starts to Feed Local Deer

 

With over 323 inches of snow so far this season, some locals are finding it difficult to dig themselves out of their houses. Although the community is used to heavy snowfall, this is blowing away many residents, not having seen this much in over 20 years. The average snowfall for the year is typically 247 inches, and it's only the beginning of February! This is shaping up to be a pretty legendary season. Other resorts nearby have received even more!

Brighton: 490"
Alta: 488"
Snowbird: 460"
Solitude: 421"

 

Summit county has even started to supplement local game diets as they've made their way down to lower elevations in search of food. Last week, we saw multiple herds of elk cross over I-80 near the mouth of Parley's Canyon at least three times. There have also been increased reports of deer, moose, and elk in backyards around Park City. 

Make sure to stay careful, as these animals might be cute but hey can be dangerous particularly when there are babies involved! For more info, check out this article in the Park Record.
