Plenty More In Store At Utah Resorts In April, May
Late-season snow storms have been rolling into Utah mountains, making it difficult to hang up the skis and snowboards but easy for resorts to stay open.
A half-dozen resorts in the Wasatch Range are set for three more weeks of carving up the spring condition, and the lifts at Snowbird should be turning until the last week in May.
At Alta, weekday skiing ends April 20 but the resort reopens the frontside lifts, Collins and Sunnyside, for the weekends of April 25-27 and May 2-4 before finally shuttering operations for the summer. Wolf Creek has closed for the season.
A number of resorts, such as Snowbasin and Brian Head, have coupled early season pass purchases with free skiing and riding for the rest of the season. Otherwise, discounted tickets like Solitude’s $49 a day ticket can be found quite readily.
Here’s a look at the closing dates for Utah resorts:
April 5: Eagle Point
May 11: Snowbird (reopens Friday-Sunday through May 26, conditions permitting)
Season pass deals include Snowbasin’s Discovery Value Pass available through April 20 for $459. The pass has add-on values like free summer gondola use and lodging and retail discounts.
Brian Head’s 2014-2015 season pass bargain of $499 goes to May 31. The pass offers three days of skiing and riding at 10 other resorts throughout the West. Park City Mountain just set its 2014-1015 season pass early deal at $725 through May 15.
