Yeah, like 2 ft at a time. Or more, depending on where you live. You need to be sure your relative isn't just trying to get rid of you!

Snow storms can be as little as a skiff or as much as 2 feet in SLC.....It just depends. But a 2ft snow storm isn't a regular occurence.....maybe one of those per winter season. I'd say the average snow storm that might hinder driving would be 4+ inches. Less than that and driving really isn't that difficult. The Salt Lake valley has efficient snow removal procedures.

I am a Utah native and number of times a snow storm has kept me from leaving the house is probably less than 10 times.

You'll want to invest in a snow thrower or several really good shovels.

Does a bear poopoo in the woods ???

Somewhere I wonder what you did expect ?
SLC is pretty far up north, so it does get rather cold here, and it does snow quite a bit depending on where you live in the SLC area.

Now that we've all expressed incredulity at your question, I'm curious about one thing. You wanted to know whether or not it snows here because you're considering a move. So, to you is snow a good or a bad thing. Because if you consider it to be a good thing and there isn't snow where you live, maybe we could arrange a swap.

Not to mention the renowned ski resorts that call Utah home!

My friends on the upper East benches sometime have 2-3 ft in the driveway when I got 4-5 inches. It just depends on where you live.
