For most people, it’s always about the first chair; first of the season, first on a powder day, first on any day. But for the last thirty years, Mike Wisland has made a habit of taking the last chair.

For the last thirty years, Wisland has been the last person to board the Sunshine lift on closing day at Alta Ski Area, UT. And yesterday was no different…

“I did it for five or six years, and then it just became something I did.”

– Mike Wisland told Fox13Now

Sunday brought the curtain down on another successful season at Alta, the 83rd in their history. For now, if you want to resort ski in Utah, Snowbird is your last remaining option.
