Utah’s last resort closes for the season on Monday

Snowbird to close for the season on May 27

SNOWBIRD, Utah  — Snowbird, Utah’s last open ski resort, will close its lifts on May 27 after a 169-day season, bringing an end to the state’s ski season. Previously, the resort had announced a tentative closing date of Memorial Day weekend, but it was confirmed that the resort will close on Monday.

The decision to close the resort is due to the rapid melting of the snowpack and the need for the resort team to focus on large resort improvements this summer, such as the Wilbere chair upgrade. The resort’s base snow depth currently sits at 96 inches, and they expect conditions to be good enough for skiing and riding on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The resort will also be hosting live music over the holiday weekend.

This marks the end of a successful ski season for Snowbird, which has hosted 169 days of skiing and a total snowfall of 603 inches for the 2023-24 season.

Snowbird is one of three resorts that remain open for Memorial Day Weekend. Palisades Tahoe will spin lifts and has a base depth of 94 inches and Mammoth Mountain will be open with a 55 inch base at the summit.
