Four Ski Resorts Open With Feet Of Fresh Powder Following Massive Snowstorm
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The massive Thanksgiving storm that affected a majority of the state came just in time for the opening of four Utah ski resorts.
Snowbird, Alta, Solitude and Snowbasin were all set to open lifts on Black Friday, and all four received multiple feet of fresh powder.
Snowbird’s snow stake was measured 14 inches early Friday, but the snow as continuing to fall. The resort has received more than three feet of snow from the storm, which turned out to be a little too much.
Representatives from Snowbird said the heavy snowfall sparked avalanche activity and forced patrollers and mountain operations to staff to pause their busy work.
According to resort officials, skiers and snowboarders should anticipate a delayed opening as crews work to mitigate the avalanche dangers.
