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.

We always expect to see our Utah resorts rank well, and this year us no exception, with seven Utah ski resorts in the Top 20.

skiing in Utah well into the month of May, possibly June?

Below is a list of the current scheduled closing days at Utah's most popular ski resorts. Many resorts have extended their seasons with the substantial snowpack. Snowbird just hit 785 inches, Alta is at 843, and Brighton is at 836! It has been an insane year that will provide for amazing spring skiing. Each year Snowbird typically runs lifts until they run out of snow, and this year they should easily get to, and maybe past the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Sotheby's International Realty has released its Luxury Outlook Report for 2023. A few notable thoughts on trends in the article reflect what we have seen here locally in Park City and Deer Valley.

See the link below for the Sotheby's 2023 Luxury Outlook Report

We see a divide growing between buyers and sellers. Sellers expect a pace of sales activity consistent with the last two years, while buyers are seeing losses in the stock market and expect those results to translate into reductions in real estate prices. Neither is quite the right outlook.

We recently heard a quote calling our current market a "Nobody's Market," meaning we're not in a Buyer's Market or a Seller's Market. Neither side has favorable terms, and both seem to have

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!
