We will open for the 2008/09 winter season tomorrow, Friday November 14 at 9 AM. Be one of the first to ride our two new high speed quads – Apex Express and Moonbeam Express! The shiny new lifts will whisk you up the hill in just under 4 minutes, which means more turns for you!
Due to some early season snowfall, as well as our snowmaking crew working around the clock, we’re proud to report a 27″ mid-mountain base. To date, we have had almost 3 feet of snowfall on the hill, and with this being Utah, I am sure more is not far off in the forecast.
As far as opening day goes, unfortunately, our ticketing partner encountered unexpected problems with our new gates, delaying delivery. We will be visually inspecting all passes over the next few weeks. In order to do this we will need ALL VISITORS to check in at the ticket office.
We know this is a huge inconvenience for you, and we sincerely apologize. On a positive note, the new gates are very nice and feature 360 degrees of “scanability.” In the future you won’t have to do the “which pocket is my pass in” dance against the turnstile! Once the new gates are in, you’ll thank us…trust me!
Now is the time to let Mother Nature know how much you love her coolest season by dancing, partying and running down to the 2008 Fat Flake Festival Saturday, November 15 from 4:30 – 10:00 p.m. at the Gallivan Center. This year’s festival features music by The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, Cavedoll and Junior Giant. Be a part of the action by participating in the NEW First-ever ski boot race, vintage ski outfit contest, ice skating and much more. All your favorite athletes will be there to sign autographs including Julian Carr, Rachael Burks, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and more. Don’t miss out on the chance to win great prizes including an outfit from Eider, Rossignol skis and boots, a Burton snowboard, lift tickets and other Utah resort swag. Join Ski Utah as we call out to the snow gods and welcome winter back to the Wasatch!
