SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – With more storms on the way and feet of fresh powder, skiers are eager to hit the slopes.
Friday will be the first full day of skiing for Alta and Snowbird after a historic interlodge order that lasted more than 60 hours.
Approximately 1,500 people were stranded at resorts, and officials said there hasn’t been an interlodge like this in two decades.
The resorts in Little Cottonwood Canyon have been closed since Monday after the recent winter weather increased the avalanche dangers. Crews have been working around the clock on avalanche mitigation while also dealing with natural avalanches.
State Route 210 officially reopened Thursday afternoon.
