Important Mountain Operations Updates for Monday 1/15

It’s a powder day! There will be great skiing on the frontside, and our goal is to open as much terrain as possible on the Back Mountain! All food & beverage, retail outlets, and activities will be open as normal.

See below for anticipated terrain openings, expected weather, as well as parking and transportation information for what will be a busy powder day on the mountain.

Another 6″ of snow last nigh. We are experiencing HIGH winds today leading to delays on the Back Mountain.

Currently, the forecast shows another 6” – 11” could fall between tonight and tomorrow morning. Conditions were about as crazy as they come, with 15-foot-tall snow drifts due to the high winds. We have a team on the Back Mountain working on digging out lifts in preparation for tomorrow.

Parking and Transportation:
● Parking at the resort is expected to fill up tomorrow. Plan to arrive early!
● The Park N Ride (Canyon Glen Park) will be operating starting at 10am. This lot filled up on Saturday, so plan accordingly.
● UTA will also be operating, and is a great way to get to the mountain!
● We don’t anticipate road closures tomorrow, though winter road conditions will be challenging. 4WD or chains are required on SR-92.

Anticipated Terrain & Openings:
● Front Mountain: Thanks to our team’s hard work, we anticipate an on-time opening on the Front Mountain (Outlaw Express and Jakes).
● Mid Mountain: Wildwood lift and associated terrain are anticipated to open on time.
● Beginner Area: The carpets LITERALLY disappeared in all of this snow. We anticipate an on-time opening in the beginner area.
● Back Mountain: We expect some delays on the Back Mountain tomorrow morning. Please be patient, as there is a lot of work to do before we can safely open that terrain. There will be GREAT skiing on the Front and Mid Mountain areas tomorrow morning while we wait for the Back Mountain to open.
● Terrain Parks: Terrain parks will have to be rebuilt due to the amount of snow that has fallen. We don’t anticipate having terrain parks open tomorrow.
● Nordic Center: We anticipate opening the Nordic Center, however this is subject to change based on snow
