We are thankful for the 20/21 season, and extend our gratitude to the local resort operators for delivering the season in the midst of pandemic precautions. All in all, it was a remarkably good season, with storm cycles that always seemed to land on Fridays and Saturdays.  

The Quiet Season Arrives

We’re soaking up the last days of the winter ski season in anticipation of a beautiful spring, with more of the fun, friends, and events that were missing last year. If you’ve never spent time here during April and May, shoulder season is a great time to enjoy mild weather with lots of elbow room. We also like to take this time of year to get out a little further afield to see some of Utah’s off-the-beaten-path offerings. Check out the following suggestions for springtime fun in and around the Wasatch Back!

 

Hopefully this season’s precautions and safety measures will soon be a distant memory as vaccinations are now available. In the meantime, there are still a few weeks left to get out and enjoy the snow! See below for our local resort end-of-season dates, or for up-to-date closing info on all of Utah’s ski resorts, visit Ski Utah here.
