14 Resorts in One Day: Local Utah Skiers Make History

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 16, 2012 4:39 pm

Ski Utah and fourteen local skiers made history this week when they skied all 14 of Utah’s resorts in a single day. They are the only people to do so. 

The skiers first approached Ski Utah with the idea of raising money for organizations like Huntsman Cancer Institute and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Canyon Transportation donated their services to the cause, committing to drive the skiers to and from each resort in a collaborative effort to help them succeed in their goal.   Since then, Eagle Point, Utah’s newest resort and number 14 was opened near Beaver.

It was an early morning for the group; their day began at 3 a.m. at Brian Head, the southernmost resort in the state.  Shuttling from resort to resort was an all-day event that culminated with their last run at 7:45 p.m. at Beaver Mountain near Logan, Utah.  The record was originally set by a group in 2009 with an admirable 13 resorts on the schedule.  

“Utah is famous for the unparalleled access of its ski and snowboard
resorts,” said Ski Utah Communications Director Jessica Kunzer. “This is why we were compelled to enjoy the unique opportunity to ski every resort in our state in a single day.”
