Utah--POM--Soar Utah--Current Events and Weather


I decided to move my weather reports, slope calls and misc. ramblings over to a new thread other than fill up the Soar Utah thread with non directly related Soar Utah stuff.

So basically this thread is to dicuss past, present and future conditions at the Point so people can kick themselves for missing a huge day (like Monday) see who might be showing up and checking in on what the winds might be like. Also I will be posting pictures and video from time to time.

So anyone with comments, news, pictures and videos bring it on!


Here are a few pics from earlier this week when we were constant 40+

Dude, your pictures are just killing me; I'm dying with envy. Would you happen to have some weather links for POM we can keep track of the conditions with?

Weatherstation down on the frontage-road right between the north/southside slopes;
Add at least 50% for windspeed up top!

Been chilly for a couple days, but Fri/Sat are looking really nice;

You bet! The first link gives real time wind about .75 mile from POM at ground level. On Monday it was reading 24-29--and was blowing 40+ up above. So the point is no matter what this is reading, from the SOUTH, add to it for what it is doing on the slope.


The next one gives a view and current conditions


Use camera 285

Here is the NOAA Link for POM


Remember to add some for up on the Mtn. You are looking for South South East winds.

Here is a wind map of the valley I find myself looking at a lot.


If you look for the weather station on the right when driving to the south side from the north you will know where UTALP is.

On the map it is just off the left corner of that little blue window, my cursor did not show up in the screen shot.

It should also be mentioned that when the wind is from the north there is a DS spot up on the back hill but you have to hike to it.
