SALT LAKE CITY — Utahns who haven't had their fill of winter recreation should plan on hitting the slopes soon, as the majority of Utah's ski resorts will close for the season sometime in April.
Only Snowbird, the Little Cottonwood resort that prides itself on the longest season in Utah, plans to push past that month, though a Snowbird employee told KSL.com the resort may move to weekends only in April.
Cache County's Cherry Peak resort also doesn't have a closing date yet. It depends on the weather, staffers said, but the resort will definitely be open through March.
The final ski days for the rest of Utah's resorts are as follows:
- Alta: April 18, plus "bonus weekend" April 23-25
- Beaver Mountain: April 4
- Brian Head: April 18
- Brighton: April 18
- Deer Valley: April 11
- Eagle Point: April 4
- Nordic Valley: March 28
- Park City Mountain: April 11
- Powder Mountain: April 11
- Snowbasin: April 11
- Solitude: April 18
- Sundance: April 4
Utah's ski resorts were forced to close early in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but returned for the winter season with added precautions and protocols. The weather didn't cooperate, though, giving Utah one of its driest winter seasons in years.
But the lack of snow didn't affect the season length at most resorts, as they cease operations around the same time each year. Snowbird, however, probably won't be having a ski day on the Fourth of July this year as it did in 2019.
