Snowbird Will Offer Skiing Through June 20

A cold storm yesterday dumped great spring powder at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. That and other recent storms have allowed Snowbird to extend its ski season. The resort now expects to offer skiing on weekends through June 20. (It had planned to close after Memorial Day.)

Yesterday's storm produced the latest measurable snowfall ever at Salt Lake International Airport.

See Snowbird's late spring/early summer schedule.

KCPW has this news report about Snowbird's extended season. Below are excerpts.

Snowbird has the longest ski season in the state and is the only resort still open. This year, the slopes will remain open until June 20, for a total of 199 days. That’s just two days short of the longest Snowbird season on record. The 2004-05 season extended to July 4.

“It’s certainly a great way to end the season when we don’t have a shortage of snow and the conditions are still great. There’s great correlations between snow and bookings, that’s the business we’re in,” (Jessica) Kunzer says. “And if nothing else, it might help consumer confidence as we head into next season.”
