Utah's Snowbird resort announced this week that they're going to extend their 2009-2010 season through June 2oth, a date which will lead to the second longest season in its history. Above-normal spring snowfall will allow the mountain to offer skiing and riding on weekends only (Friday/Saturday/Sunday), although a special exception will be made for Memorial Day. The resort is reporting 588 inches of snowfall this season - that's nearly FIFTY FEET for you math majors - with a mid-mountain base that currently stands at a whopping 117 inches.
Current lift ticket prices are $62, with terrain being accessed by the Tram, Little Cloud and Mineral Basin lifts. As a resort press release pointed out, their extended season will allow them to offer skiing and riding on Father's Day, which falls on June 20th. What I'm wondering is, why not go until June 21st - the official start of summer?
