Cherry Peak To Open As Utah’s Newest Resort; Others Primed To Go

CherryPeak FallCherry Peak -- Utah’s first new resort in more than three decades -- is set to debut this season.

Resort officials haven’t set an official opening date yet as work is wrapping up on the base lodge remodel and installation of a new chairlift.

Located within an hour of Logan near the Idaho border, the day-trip mountain is expected to have four lifts running – including two triple chairs -- serving 1,265 vertical feet and about 30 runs. All of the advanced and expert terrain lies on the front of the mountain, off the Gateway lift, while the backside offers prime novice and intermediate runs off two lifts, including the new Summit lift.

All across the high country in Utah, crews are putting the final touches on off-season projects and regular maintenance – and firing up snow guns -- in anticipation of opening for skiing and snowboarding, beginning in third week of November.

Here’s the list of anticipated opening dates, weather permitting:
