Fly to the ‘Bird’ for Extended Skiing

Posted By: The Ski Channel on May 16, 2009 7:58 pm

It’s official: Utah’s epic late season storms worked their magic. Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort just announced that the mountain will be open for skiing and riding on weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) through June 14. That makes it 200 days of skiing and riding for the 2008/09 season—one day short of Snowbird’s record 2004/05 showdown when slopes were open for 201 days and closed on July 4.

“We’ve experienced another incredible year of snowfall at Snowbird, especially in March and April,” said Snowbird President Bob Bonar. “Our snowpack is in great shape for this time of year and we’re excited to be able to extend our ski season well into June.”

If the temps don’t explode, the Utah resort will consider remaining open for additional weekends after June 14. Keep your tips crossed.
