Blizzard

A blizzard is a severe snowstorm characterized by strong sustained winds of at least 56 km/h (35 mph) and lasting for a prolonged period of time—typically three hours or more.

Maybe not a blizzard by definition. But a bit more than a simple low pressure system moving through.

Some high spots did pretty good. Telluride had the driest snow I've boarded there in 30 years. From opensnow.com

Big wet flake's coming down here in Huntington Utah. Keep these storm's a comin🥶
I think exactly last year we were on the swell snow and rain was a muddy mess. We love the swell I tell the grand kids it's the biggest museum in the world. Problem is to many are finding out about it. You're lucky to have it in your back yard.

I'm 20 mile's from the Wedge and it is an awesome place, I've seen a lot of car's out there from a lot of different state's. They call it the little grand canyon now. I take everyone that come's to see me out there. I've been enjoying that for 40 yrs now, I took my 91 year old fishing buddy out there not long ago and it was the first time I ever saw it with snow all over, very cool.
