Easter Marks Last Big Ski Season Weekend

Easter is the final big ski weekend in Utah. A storm expected tomorrow and Friday should put another couple inches of snow in some resorts. Many of our resorts are still open and have relatively good conditions.

Some resorts will stay open as long as conditions allow. Snowbird expects to offer daily skiing through April and then move to weekends only in May. Other resorts have scheduled closing dates.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about Easter skiing and other recreational activities. Here are excerpts.

"This time of year, most skiers are hoping for sunny skies," said Jessica Kunzer of Ski Utah. "We will have that later in the week. … Everybody wants to don bright Easter colors and sunglasses. This is the last big holiday weekend for the resorts. They are reporting that it will be relatively busy. We are hoping it will be a nice strong finish to our season."

And that season is definitely winding down. Beaver Mountain, Wolf Mountain and Eagle Point are closed. Snowbasin and Sundance will close Sunday. Brian Head, Deer Valley, Canyons, Park City, Solitude and Powder Mountain end their seasons April 15.

Much of the spring recreation interest is moving to southern Utah. Many state and national park campgrounds will be full this weekend and motel rooms will be hard to find.
