The arrival early Thursday of what was expected to be the first wave of several days of winter storms blanketed Utah's ski resorts with a bounty of fresh powder.

Ski Utah reported that 12-hour totals from the storm that moved over the Wasatch Mountains, and to a lesser extent the central and southern Utah slopes, were generally, well, generous.

Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Powder Mountain resorts all recorded a foot of new snowfall as of dawn Thursday. Snowbasin came in at 10 inches, with Beaver Mountain, Park City Mountain, Solitiude and Sundance resorts measuring 9 inches. Canyons had 8 inches, Deer Valley 9 and Wolf Mountain recorded 3 inches.

Those totals were expected only to rise as snow was predicted to continue periodically well into the weekend.
