This is from March, 2011…with another two months of snow to come…two weather systems per week moved through the area mountains from March to May of that year, bringing record snow levels to the Wasatch….

  1. Great shot! Whoa……who had to do the shoveling? ! … in peace…..

    • Well…I’m not sure if anybody was shoveling it…this is a “summer” cabin that is rather tucked away in the forest…not sure if anybody was there at this time of the year…but it would have been quite a chore for sure!

      • Ah, certainly makes sense a summer cabin! Otherwise, snowed in for the winter……joyful NY….in peace…..

        December 31, 2012 at 6:45 pm

        • Yes, joyful Utah, too…just outside of Salt Lake proper….

    Some snowfall!

    • Yes, a very big wow! Lots of snow in this part of the woods and not much sun to melt it very quickly.

  3. Love, LOve, LOVE it!!!

    • I’m glad you do, Bonnie…thank you!

  4. Classic winter shot. All those layers of snow visible and the uncanny way that it drapes itself over the edge of the building.

    • Almost mind-boggling…didn’t see any of this in Phoenix! I’m loving it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Smashing picture Scott. That is a hell of alot of snow.

    December 28, 2012 at 10:59 am

    • Thanks, Chillbrook…and yes, it is one hell of a lot of snow!

      December 31, 2012 at 7:42 pm

  6. Stunning photo, gorgeous. I’ll stop complaining about the 2 inches I had this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    December 28, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    • Thanks ApplePie…and yeah…two inches is a light dusting compared to this!

      December 31, 2012 at 7:43 pm

  7. I hope they build strong roof structures…..that much snow would flatten our house.

    December 28, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    • I think they do, John…it gets rather deep out there….

      December 31, 2012 at 7:45 pm

  8. I love the way snow slides off of roofs. Looks so cool! (And I mean that literally.)

    December 28, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    • It is rather cool, Terri…however that might be meant. ๐Ÿ™‚

      December 31, 2012 at 7:45 pm

  9. We had nearly the same thing happen here in 2011. I’m really hopng it doesn’t happen again soon-all i did was shovel.

    December 28, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    • We had quite a bit at our house, too, but nothing crazy like this cabin in the mountains…and yes, there was quite a bit of shoveling that winter…..

      December 31, 2012 at 7:46 pm

  10. Amazing Scott!

    December 28, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    • Thanks, Nancy. ๐Ÿ™‚

      December 31, 2012 at 7:47 pm

  11. That’s a great shot Scott! We had that kind of snow here in the winter of ’96/’97. I’m hoping for that this year in the lower end of Glacier.

    • Thank you, Terry…I hope you get it, too…I know you’re looking forward to a good snow-shoe trek.

      December 31, 2012 at 7:48 pm

  12. I am soooo glad we moved to Oregon. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    December 28, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    • I’ll bet you are, Gunta!

      December 31, 2012 at 7:49 pm

  13. So many thick layers of snow! It must be a strongly built dwelling!

    December 29, 2012 at 10:24 am

    • I believe it is, Meanderer…seems to be the mode for the cabins in that part of the mountains…very stout.

      December 31, 2012 at 7:50 pm

  14. Wow a lot of snow!!

    December 29, 2012 at 10:26 am

    • Yes, it is, Yvonne…. ๐Ÿ™‚

      December 31, 2012 at 7:50 pm

  15. Quello che piรน colpisce รจ la grande quantitร  di neve caduta e l’innalzamento della temperatura, come testimoniano gli alberi privi di neve.

    December 29, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    • That is very striking, Popof…imagine how much snow there was before it melted enough to have it gone from the trees!!

      December 29, 2012 at 2:06 pm

  16. Fabulous! That looks like a cozy spot.

    December 30, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    • Oh, I would love to be inside there…sitting in front of the fireplace with a good book…fabulous, indeed!

      December 31, 2012 at 7:51 pm

  17. That’s amazing! I am surprised the roof could handle it without breaking.

    January 1, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    • Yes, it is rather amazing, Rachael…and I imagine that the cabin roof was built to withstand the weight…it appears to be a “relatively” new structure, intentionally built where the snows accumulate to such depths…wonderful! ๐Ÿ™‚
