Alta Ski Area pushes back its opening day from November 23 to the 29th.

Recent high temperatures in Utah are making it difficult for snowmaking crews to blow snow and consequently many resorts in the area have delayed their opening dates by a week. We are hoping for temperatures to drop soon so snowmaking can re-commence and the winter season can start. We are optimistic that this will be the case soon.

  1. Major western ski areas like Alta, Snowbird, Squaw Valley
    used to laugh at eastern ski area that cranked up
    snowmaking.

    Well they mostly have snowmaking and are not laughing now.

  2. Snow making, I did not know they had any.
    Alta will be just fine.
    Looking forward to our annual trip in March.
