Park City Mountain Resort Postpones Ski Opening

We're basking under unseasonably warm temperatures and that has prompted Park City Mountain Resort to postpone its opening day. The ski resort was set to open on Saturday, Nov 22, but now says it will not open until conditions become more winter-like. has this article about the development. Below is an excerpt.

"The resort [is unable] to provide guests with the experience they have come to expect from a top-five rated mountain," said PCMR's Paula Altschuler.

Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude have been open for some time and have decent early-season conditions. They are in canyon locations where temperatures are cooler and they have also had significant natural snowfall.

Meanwhile, people are golfing, hiking, biking and enjoying the nice weather. The latest forecast suggests it will hold into next week. A storm is out there and may bring new snow to our resorts next Wednesday.
