It’s no secret that it has been a historic season in Utah’s Big Cottonwood Canyon. Resorts like Solitude have seen a constant barrage of snow that has created unprecedented late-season conditions and the resort is doing what they can to make the most of it.
Skiing and riding will now continue daily until May 21st. This comes after the resort had already announced an extension prior to this decision, a reflection of the 783 inches of snow they have received this year. They will begin operating with limited terrain on May 8th, with service out of Powderhorn, Moonbeam, Apex, and Link chairlifts. Considering the latest they have shut down operations in prior years has been May 1st, this announcement will bring further excitement to Utah skiers and snowboarders after a season that will be talked about for years.
The resort deserves some praise for staying open this late in the year. Beating their previous closing day record by over 3 weeks is not an easy task to accomplish, historic snowfall or not. Cheers to you, Solitude!
5 more weeks of skiing and riding and we’re adding even more days to our longest season ever, again! 🤩 We will now be open DAILY until May 21. Limited terrain from Powderhorn, Moonbeam, Apex, and Link lifts will be open starting May 8.
