Ski Resort News & Opening Dates

An intense storm is expected to hit Utah over the next couple days, with the biggest punch coming Tuesday. It will bring rain to our valleys and more snow to mountain areas. It should give our ski resorts a solid base and allow most to open earlier than normal. Tentative opening dates are listed below, courtesy of www.skiutah.com.

In other ski news, Alta/Snowbird have again been named the top ski area in the US by Skiing Magazine. The resorts are located adjacent to each other in Little Cottonwood Canyon, just outside of Salt Lake City. They offer a combined pass and so Skiing Magazine considers them together for its rankings. This is the fourth year in a row they have earned the top US ranking.

The magazine ranked Alta/Snowbird No 2 in North America behind Whistler Blackcomb. More details.
