Despite lack of snow, Utah ski season finishes strong

Resorts » Snowfall was lackluster, but that didn’t stop out-of-state skiers from visiting. 

The 2011-12 Utah ski season wasn’t memorable, but it did have a few highlights.

Brighton Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon marked its 75th anniversary, while Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Little Cottonwood turned 40.

The most epic dump of the season — 37 inches in 24 hours — happened in mid-March at Sundance Resort.

And a group of skiers became the first to ski all 14 Utah resorts — from Brian Head in the south to Beaver Mountain in the north — in a single day. The skiers, who set up the craziness as a fund-raiser, started March 15 with a 3 a.m. wake-up call and ended with a final run at 7:45 p.m. The tired group then donated $10,000 to the Huntsman Cancer Center and $6,000 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
