Ski Conditions Are Excellent As Resorts Look Toward Spring
Ski conditions are magnificent right now but will start to deteriorate in a few weeks if we ever get any warmer, spring-like weather.
Note I said if... This year winter has been colder than normal and so good skiing will hold longer at our resorts. Right now there is no end in sight. Storms that just moved out of Utah left plenty of powder, including these 48 hour totals:
Snowbasin 18 inches new
Alta 17 inches new
Snowbird 15 inches new
Powder Mountain 14 inches new
Brian Head 13 inches new
Eagle Point 13 inches new
More snow is expected this week. But with March right around the corner, we're bound to get warmer weather sometime soon. Typically our resorts start to close in April. Seasons may be extended this year if the cold, snowy weather pattern holds.
Some of the best deals of the season are offered during spring. See our special ski packages.
As the weather warms, people will shed insulated suites and start wearing all kinds of crazy outfits. It is always fun to see people skiing in shorts and t-shirts. That will happen, assuming spring eventually arrives.
The annual Spring Gruv at Canyons Resort is always a highlight. It will happen March 22-31. It brings 10 days of free concerts, food, fun and then always popular pond skimming contest where people dress up in outrageous customs and attempt to ski across a pond of open water.
