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

skiing at park city ski resort

Utah's winter ski season is getting off to a great start. Another significant winter storm passed through the Wasatch Mountains earlier this week, bringing year-to-date snow totals (for the 22/23 season) up to 100" inches. Temperatures have been cold, allowing the resorts to blow artificial snow while receiving a blizzard of Utah's famous fresh powder.

Deer Valley and Park City are starting to accumulate a solid base, while the resorts in the Cottonwood Canyons got pummeled. Our early-season snowpack is way above normal, allowing most of Utah's ski resorts to open early. Looks as though it will be a great year!
