11 Jun 11 - "At this northern Utah resort, it is still winter," says this article in the New York Times. "There is hardly a bare spot on the mountain. Piles of snow line the vast parking lot. With much of the country in the grip of record-high temperatures, it was 31 degrees here Friday morning."

With 20 inches of powder over Memorial Day weekend and an average base of more than 15 feet, Snowbird has announced that it will be open for snow sports three days a week until July 4 - and could stay open even later.

“The snowpack we have right now is 525 percent of normal,” said Brian McInerney, the hydrologist for the National Weather Service in Utah."

“There are places on the mountain that will probably retain snow all summer long,” said Emily Moench, the resort’s communications manager.

Read that again. "There are places on the mountain that will probably retain snow all summer long"!

That's how ice ages begin!
