This week, several Utah ski resorts broke their all-time snowfall records... and more snow is in the forecast! ❄️❄️❄️ We are so fortunate to be experiencing this incredible ski season. Keith is continuing with his weekly physical therapy routine and has been making excellent progress.

Keith's physical therapy update

Keith's physical therapy is going very well. 😅 He has made excellent progress so far with his range of motion and muscle-building exercises. The physical therapist thinks that Keith may be able to cancel the planned PRP injection if he continues with this level of progression. It would be amazing if Keith could get by without the need for a painful PRP shot. 🤞

Record Snowfall in Utah! ❄️🗻⛷️

Utah ski resorts are breaking snowfall records this year! Some resorts have recently reached the 800" mark (that's nearly 67 feet of snow)! 🤯 A typical "good" year would be somewhere around the 500" mark at resorts such as Alta and Snowbird. This year, we passed that mark in December and are still enjoying deep powder days in late March. This has definitely been an epic ski season and it's not over yet... the current forecast calls for up to an additional 50" in the upper Cottonwood Canyons!!! ☃️

Another important aspect of all this snow, besides skiing, is the Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) measurement. This value is used to measure the total water amount that we received from the snowfall. The record-breaking SWE values are much needed considering Utah has been in a severe drought for the last 5-10 years.
