Park City Mountain Resort, UT, the largest ski area in the US, announced that due to warm temperatures and lack of snow, it would be delaying its scheduled November 19th opening day. A new opening day was not offered.

Opening Day Update:

While we’re as excited as ever to kick off the season, recent warm temps are delaying our opening day.

But don’t be dismayed! Our snowmakers are working hard around the clock and are making snow at every opportunity. We’re committed to providing the best early-season experience possible and will open with a high-quality snow surface as soon as conditions allow.

We’ll issue an update on our new target opening day soon.

Think snow and check back here for updates!

PCMR announcement

Warm temperatures have obliterated early season snow in Utah, October was the snowiest in 17-years, as well as prevented snowmaking operations. Currently Solitude and Brian Head are heading up the race to be the first resort to open in Utah, targeting November 19th. Three others are also targeting this weekend and hoping to be open in time for the Thanksgiving weekend.

The forecast isn’t too optimistic either. There isn’t much snow forecast this week, and with low temperatures around 30ºF, the possibility of snowmaking will be limited.
