Utah Ski Resorts Project Opening Dates

We’ve been enjoying marvelous warm, dry fall weather, but that is expected to change tonight as a cold storm moves over the area. Utah mountains could get several inches of snow during the next few days.

It will melt in most areas, of course, and we will yet have nice, warm days. But winter is coming and with it, the ski season. Last year we set records for amount of snow and number of ski days. This year, nobody knows what Mother Nature will present.

Utah ski resorts are now projecting their opening dates, hoping for an early and long season. This news report from ABC4 provides details. Below are excerpts.

Salt Lake area resorts, Alta, Brighton and Snowbird are projecting their opening dates in mid-November. Solitude opens on November 1st.

Park City ski resorts have varying dates, depending on snow accumulation.

The Canyons Resort plans on a Thanksgiving weekend opener, with Park City Mountain beginning a week earlier. Sundance and Deer Valley are waiting until the first weekend in December.

Some resorts will open earlier if conditions permit. Some years we have offered skiing in early November. Most of our resorts will be open by Thanksgiving Day.
