Closing dates for Utah Ski Areas

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I will be in Park City with a couple of friends 4/6-4/13 and we noticed that the 3 resorts in town list 4/10 as their closing date.  That's not really a big deal since we plan to hit Snowbird and maybe another place or two while we are there but I was wondering how set in stone these dates are?  What about Snowbasin, conditions permitting when do they typically close?

Usually the SLC areas close about the same time, except for Alta and Snowbird.  Your trip will coincide with a period when there are often huge dumps.  I try to hit there every year in April and have had very good luck with powder.

 

Last day at Alta is always a good party. Lots of people skiing in costumes.

When does Snowbasin close, let's hope its past April 20 or later? 4ster any info on this?

 

Alta closing date is April 24 and Snowbird, if history is any guide, then it will be open after that almost certainly.

Looks like Alta is planning to stay open through the first weekend in May and I know Snowbird often goes until Father's Day.  I imagine most ski areas should more or less be a ghost town which I am looking forward too.  I would like to take my friends up north to Snowbasin and/or Pow Mow if the weather and time permits because I had such a great time there last month but we have a ski-in/ski-out condo at Park City so it might be tough to convince them to go else where.

Do not know about this year, but in the past Alta has gone to just being open for 3 or 4-day weekends the last couple weeks of their extended season.

I think I overheard someone at Powder saying it was going to be an early closing this year--like 4/9 or 4/10. Last year, I think 4/20 was the last day. Most resorts close right in that time frame between early and late April. Snowbird is the exception, so at least you can pretty much count on having one resort to go to.

It sounds like at the very least we will have Alta and Snowbird to choose from on the last 2 days.  Man I don't know if I can live with those options. wink.gif
