“Greatest Snow on Earth”—it’s on the state license plate. Most winters it holds true for Utah. After last season starting off strong but then experiencing a 7-week drought from January to March followed by an unusually cold, snowy spring, let’s hope that the Beehive State gets a little more consistency in terms of snowfall this season.

Here are the projected opening dates for Utah ski areas this winter: 

Alta — Nov. 18

Beaver Mountain — TBD

Brian Head — Nov. 18

Brighton TBD

Cherry Peak — TBD

Deer Valley — Dec. 3

Eagle Point — Dec. 16

Nordic Valley — Dec. 9

Park City Mountain — Nov. 18

Powder Mountain — TBD

Snowbasin — Nov. 25

Snowbird — Nov. 30

Solitude — Nov. 18

Sundance — Dec. 9

Woodward Park City — TBD

Alta, Brian Head, Park City, and Solitude have all selected the same opening day of November 18 this season. This date is subject to change depending on weather and snow conditions at that time, but if it all works out skiers and snowboarders will have at least four options to choose from when wanting to ski in the early season this year.

Snowbird, Alta, Solitude, Brighton, Deer Valley, and now Snowbasin are all included on the Ikon Pass, so if you live in the Salt Lake area, this pass will get you the most bang for your buck.
