Alta Ski area opened in 1939.  It has been very proud of the claim that it has never failed to reach a snow base depth of more than 100 inches.  (It's earliest records are subject to some doubt as to their reliability and measurement techniques, but the 100 inch base measurements are pretty certainly accurate at least since  WWII.

Until this year that is!!

Alta's accumulated to over 90 inches but it clearly and definitely failed to make the 100 inch base mark at any time during the 2014/15 season.

Did that lack of a few inches piled up on the ground effect anybody's skiing?  No.  Eight feet covering the rocks and roots is just fine.

But nevertheless, a long-standing run has come to an end.
