Since the beginning of January, storms have been rolling off the Pacific and feeding the mountains of the West. Selected areas have been getting pounded, like the five feet that fell on Utah's Wasatch Range in five days.

Powderhounds have had a smorgasbord of resorts to choose from, while piste skiers and riders find a plethora of groomed trails and slopes open and freshly corduroyed at all mountains of the West.

Forecasters are calling for a pause at the end of January, but predict another convoy of storms to further “pile it on” as the season enters February.
