While much of the country is bemoaning their weather, Utah is celebrating the start of what could be another great winter. Late last week we transitioned the best way we know how, golfing in shorts on Thursday, to playing in the snow on Friday.

Thursday was windy and warm, and there were less golfers than turkeys and deer on the Wasatch Mountain State Park golf course, where yours truly was just six inches from carding his first ever hole in one on the 190 yard par 3 hole number 8.(Made the tap in birdie, thank you)

Then came 'Brutus'...apparently we are now naming winter storms...and the mountains were inundated with snow.

Four feet of snow fell in the Cottonwood Canyons. Alta Ski Resort is reporting 48 inches and a 43 inch mid mountain base Snowbird reported 43 inches of new snow.

Check out this video from Snowbird  if you doubt the storm totals...

Park City Mountain Resort (opening November 17) and Canyons Resort (opening November 23)both measured in with at at least 30 inches of new snow from the storm.

Brighton Resort opens tomorrow, November 13, with 47 inches of new snow!

So, winter is upon us, time to change out the golf clubs for skis and boards, but there's year round golf in the Salt Lake Valley, so maybe I will still card that hole in one before the end of the year....
