SALT LAKE CITY — With 79 inches and counting at Solitude Mountain Resort, the mountain will be opening earlier than previously announced. Officials announced a new opening date of November 10, the earliest opening day since 2013 for the mountain. With similar snow totals, officials at Brighton Ski Resort have also announced an early season opening set for Friday, November 11.
Solitude plans to open Moonbeam Express and Link Lift Thursday with first chair at 2:00 p.m. for Solitude season pass and Ikon Pass holders.
Brighton, which has received 60 inches of snow since October 22, will have its Majestic, Explorer, and Snake Creek lifts up and running for guests from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
“Early season snowfall and low temps allowed us to set up the mountain pretty early this year,” Jared Winkler, director of marketing for Brighton Resort, said in a press release. “We estimate that between 50 and 200 snowboarders and skiers have been coming up here every day since the first big storm of the season a few weeks ago.”
Brighton will also offer free skiing or riding to all active military members or veterans on opening day to celebrate their service. These tickets will only be available at ticket windows, and proof of eligibility is required.
Brighton’s night operations are expected to begin on Dec. 12.
