What a weekend! With the storm producing over 2.5 feet of snow, Ski Patrol was kept very busy.
Here are some photos of the crew in Lady Morgan on Friday:

Grey skies threatened to snow all day on Thursday. Ski Patroller TJ Somers got out into Centennial Trees off Lady Morgan Express to find a little untracked snow.
With 7″ of snow last night and 2-3 feet of snow expected by Sunday, this will be buried in the fresh white stuff all over again. There will be PLENTY of fresh tracks this weekend. Gotta love Utah!
Yesterday at Deer Crest was a lot of fun, under some amazing blue skies and a toasty sun.
Here’s Lincoln Davie, one of DV’s Ski Patrollers getting some telemark turns on Mountaineer.
Lila, Deer Valley Ski Patrol’s most experienced Avalanche Rescue dog at 11 years old, has worked more seasons keeping skiers safe at Deer Valley than many of the patrollers.
Here she awaits the arrival of her handler Sue Anderson into the patrol shack, or she may have caught a whiff of bacon, I’m not sure
Yesterday was a beautiful, crisp day on the mountain. With temperatures hanging in the single digits and abundant sunshine I was able to capture the following photos:
