Snowbird, UT just passed 700″ of total snowfall for the season, only the third resort to reach that figure this season. They have received 708″ of snow so far this season and are sitting on a 116″ base.
The figure makes this season, at least unofficially, their best snow year EVER. Officially, the resort stops keeping its formal measurements on April 30, with the all-time record being 690 inches, set in the 2010-2011 season.
The resort, which boasts the #LongestSeasonInUtah, has had 16″ of fresh snow over the last 2 days is still open for skiers and riders and this latest storm certainly sets up what looks like an epic long weekend.
Only Californian resorts Squaw Valley (715″) and Mammoth Mountain (712″) have received more snow this season.
Snowbird will be open for this Memorial Day weekend and plans to keep operations going through at least Father’s Day (June 16). If the snow allows, there are already plans for a special Fourth of July ski day. Fingers crossed, right?!
