Seventeen Days and Counting…

Snowbird locals sent us a YouTube video this week tracking the above average seasons of the past two years and this one liner: “Snowing hard in Little Cottonwood right now.” It’s official, winter is here, but when will Utah resorts open?

I’m heading to Salt Lake City this weekend for Halloween, and the forecast calls for snow. It might be worth brining my skis, don’t you think? Not the first of early season storms, the Utah ski resorts, which don’t open till mid November, have already experienced a noticeable amount of self-powered skier traffic.

 “While no Utah resorts are open yet, there is a significant dusting of snow on the Wasatch Range. Some die-hards have already scored some sweet powder turns,” says Jessica Kunzer of Ski Utah. “With a little help from Mother Nature, Utah's resort will be open in no time." As of now, “no time” means the following dates:

Alta: November 20

Brian Head: November 21

Brighton: November 16

The Canyons: November 27

Deer Valley: December 5

Park City Mountain Resort: November 21

Powder Mountain: November 28

Snowbasin: November 26

Snowbird: November 21

Solitude: November 13

Sundance: December 11
