Utah skiers and snowboarders are hungry for powder and powder news. Leave it to Ski Utah to upgrade their snow report for this season to include afternoon snow totals. They also have created an iPhone app to go along with it. Now, riders won't have to wait until the next morning for their snow beta.

You'll get afternoon snow totals as well as the morning reports, historical data, resort specific weather forecasts, and terrain park information along with 24-hour and 48-hour snow totals. Ski Utah snow report users can also win a case of Monster beverage each time Utah receives a "Monster Dump" (12 inches of snow or more in 24 hours).

Users simply log on to SkiUtah.com and click on the green "Monster Dump" banner to enter. The Ski Utah snow report can be accessed by phone, e-mail, RSS feed, mobile alert, mobile Web browser, and through Ski Utah's site.

Tech-savvy snow enthusiasts can engage in "teachreation" by downloading Ski Utah's iPhone app. The new app includes resort snow reports, "Monster Dump" alerts and, links to Hot Deals and the Ski Utah Yeti Flickr page which highlights the latest snapshots at Utah resorts. Powder has never been this portable.
