SALT LAKE CITY — May snowstorms are allowing some ski resorts to prolong their season.

Snowbird announced an adjustment in their closing date on Facebook Tuesday following the most recent snowstorms. The resort will continue operations through May 12, then switch to weekend-only operations through Memorial Day or as long as weather permits.

 

Brighton Resort closed regular operations on April 28, but reopens for The Meltdown May 3 until May 19.

The Meltdown event takes place off of Crest 6, where terrain parks are built for riders to enjoy the end of their season. “There will be plenty of corduroy and groomers to shred too,” according to Brighton’s website.

Solitude Mountain Resort’s closing day is set for May 12.
