Timp Cave Opens For Season; Snowbird Closes
Timpanogos Cave National Monument has officially opened for the season - the visitor center and caves are scheduled to be open through September 22, depending on conditions.
The Deseret News has this article on the cave opening. Below are excerpts:
Park officials said cave tours were running at capacity all day from Saturday's opening day through Memorial Day.
(Sheila) Hunt said the cave's season began roughly two weeks late this year and will end about three weeks early on September 22. The shortened season is a result of federal money cuts, which cut back on the operating budget of the park.
Hunt said visitors should plan on calling in advance and reserving tickets. Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance.
"Especially for weekends and any day around a holiday I would plan ahead," she said. "It’s a great day outing, the hike to the caves is beautiful and the caves themselves are just really awesome."
