Snowbird, Utah had hoped to stay open through Memorial Day. But Mother Nature said otherwise.

A below-average snow year and rapidly melting snow have now forced them to bring that closing day to today, Wednesday, May 19. Snowbird is now closed for the season.

Operations Update: While we aimed to have another weekend of skiing & riding, Mother Nature had other plans. After a thorough assessment by our team based on current & forecasted conditions as well as rapid melting on the mountain, Snowbird is officially closed for the 2020-21 winter season. Thank you to everyone who joined us—we’re looking forward to getting back on snow with you for our 50th season.

The Tram will be open to foot passengers starting May 28, 11 am-5 pm. Uphill travel will not be permitted until our teams have finished working on the mountain. For updates or summer details, visit – Snowbird 5/19/21

In 2019, Snowbird closed on July 4th. Last year, of course, they closed in mid-March due to COVID-19. The resort plans to stay open as long as it can every year, conditions permitting.

Snowbird’s Tram will reopen to foot passengers on May 28, 11 am-5 pm. At this time, uphill travel at the resort is permitted until mountain teams finish their current projects.
