Utah Ski Resorts Looking to Extend the Ski Season

Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain enjoyed a record February with over 100 inches of snow. With ski conditions so good and a base depth above average this year, a few of Utah's resorts have decided to extend their ski season an additional week or two. Closing day will now be on Sunday, April 21st, 2024, for Deer Valley Resort. Snowbasin also recently announced they will extend by two weeks to April 28th. A few Utah ski resorts have yet to commit to a closing day, but it will likely be between the 21st - and 28th. Snowbird typically runs the longest ski season, going into Memorial Day weekend. With sunny days and blue skies, there is nothing like spring skiing in Utah.

halloween on main street in park city

Halloween is a tricky holiday for mountain town living. When October 31st comes around, good weather is not guaranteed. We have seen sunny, blue-sky, 80-degree days and freezing, blowing snowstorms. Starting trick-or-treat activities early in the day can be valuable, especially in colder years. Once the sun sets over the ridgeline, it can get quite cold quickly.

A long-time local's favorite tradition is the annual Halloween celebration on Park City's historic Main Street. Closed for pedestrian traffic only from 3 pm to 6 pm, this is a great way to get a start on the trick-or-treat fun before dark. Dressed-up kids, parents, and even dogs travel up to Main Street, where most shops and merchants are kind enough to host PC residents and hand out bag

Reviewing real estate statistical data through May 2023, the amount of listing inventory has not increased, and the selling price of closed sales has not decreased. Sales have been steady, with selling prices at about 93-96% off the active list price. The days-on-market has continued to increase all year, now up to just over 100 days on average. The market feels active and somewhat balanced, with no clear direction favoring buyers or sellers. Now that we are into mid-June, we are seeing some good options coming to market, and we seem to see continued activity in sales. For buyers waiting for a significant slowdown leading to discounted buys, we just are not seeing signs of that type of market.
