Final Ski Weekend for all but Snowbird

Recent heavy snowfall persuaded Snowbasin Ski Resort to stay open through this weekend. It will close for the season when the lifts close on Sunday.

Alta and Brighton will also close Sunday.

Snowbird will be open daily until May 14, and on weekends through May 29.

Ray Grass sums up the ski season in this Deseret Morning News article:

“Snowbird and Snowbasin are offering reduced rates to late-season skiers. Snowbird, for example, will be selling all-day pass for $44 between May 1 and 7, then drop the price to $35 from May 8 until closing. Snowbasin is offering a pass for its final weekend for $35.

“This is the second season in a row that Alta has recorded snowfall well over 600 inches.

“The final count on the number of skier days recorded in Utah for the 2005-06 season won't be tallied for at least another month.

“But, said Nathan Rafferty, president of Ski Utah, ‘We expect to be close and could very easily exceed last year's record.’"

Fall skiing will begin again a week or two before Thanksgiving at some resorts.
