SALT LAKE CITY — Another heavy storm will be hitting Utah’s mountains Friday. Forecasters expect the storm to last until Monday morning.

The National Weather Service forecasted that accumulating snow will fall on all Utah mountains and the Wasatch back 

Ski resorts are expecting three to four feet of fresh powder by the end of this week.

According to Ski Utah, spots like Alta, Brighton, and Solitude will receive 13 to 16 inches of fresh snow within the next 48 hours.

The National Weather Service issued an avalanche watch warning for ski resorts along the central Wasatch Range.

 

Officials advised preparing for winter driving conditions, especially in the canyons. Drivers should carry a well-equipped winter survival kit in their car.
