“Due to a lack of snow and deteriorating conditions, we are closed for the season. We look forward to the 2018-2019 season and hope for better weather conditions,” says a recording on the resort’s phone line.
Kelly Canyon, Idaho received only 22 inches of snow in January compared to 45 inches in Jan. 2017. The snow that has fallen is melting rapidly because of warmer weather conditions.
Although they did receive some snow, the ski area said the weather has made it “nearly impossible to safely run the groomers and to make snow,” which in turn created “unsafe skiing conditions.”
Quadkards, gift cards or vouchers purchased this year will be honored next season, according to the Kelly Facebook page.
