And that’s a wrap—all Utah ski areas are now closed for the 2021-22 season after Snowbird spun its chairs one last time on Sunday, May 15. But even though Snowbird was the last resort to close, nearby Solitude actually had the longest season.
160 days. That’s how long Solitude spun its chairs for skiing and riding this season. The Big Cottonwood Canyon ski area opened for the season on November 23, 2021, and finished on May 1.
Solitude wrote in a Facebook post:
“We love our neighbors in Big and Little Cottonwood, but we also don’t shy away from competition. With 160 days open – we’re claiming the crown. Let’s go longer in 22/23.”
Congratulations, Solitude, on holding the title of ‘longest ski season in Utah’ this year!
