The ski/snowboard season officially ends on Sunday

LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah — Skiers and snowboarders have one last chance to get their ride before Utah’s last winter resort closes for the season.

Snowbird announced on Saturday that it would only be open for one more day: Sunday, May 15.

“While conditions at the top have been ideal for skiing and riding, the rapid warming and high temperatures forecast are impacting key operational areas of the mountain,” the resort’s announcement read. “After a thorough inspection, tomorrow, May 15, will be the last day of the 2021-22 season at Snowbird.”

Beehive State’s other 14 ski and snowboard resorts have already halted winter operations, according to skiutah.comalthough some allow adventurers to climb on their own to reach what remains of the “biggest snow in the world”.

Due to limited snowfall in some areas, only the Peruvian, Peruvian Tunnel, Mineral Basin and Little Cloud lifts will operate. The resort will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 2:00 p.m.

Lift tickets are less expensive than in winter: $100 is the general price, children 7 to 12 are $75 and those 65 and over are $85.
