Four-and-a-half feet of snow in the last week at Snowbird, 30-40" forecasted

Published: 04/05/2010

Epic mid-winter conditions, spring skiing and lodging deals abound

Snowbird, Utah - April showers have resulted in ample powder at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, which has received four-and-a-half feet in the last week, pushing the season total to 440 inches with a mid-mountain base depth of 127 inches. With an additional 30-40 inches forecasted in the coming days, the mountain is in mid-winter form and skiers are raving about the spring storms.

"Just like last year, April is providing some of the best conditions we've seen all year," said resort president Bob Bonar. "With this deep snowpack we expect to offer skiing and riding well into May, continuing our tradition of offering the longest season in Utah."

Snowbird's projected closing date is Memorial Day, weather permitting. Skiers and riders who want to extend their season can take advantage of a number of deals. Snowbird is offering a Spring Pass for $299 that is good thru the end of the 2009/10 season and discounted $62 Tram and chair tickets beginning April 12. Lodging packages, including Stay and Ski packages with Powder Perks discounts, for $99 per person/double occupancy, can be found at http://www.snowbird.com/.

To see photos and video of the recent powder skiing and riding, go to http://www.snowbird.com/ and click on Photo of the Day. Live shots of the current storm's snow accumulation can be seen using Snowbird's SnowCam at www.snowbird.com/snowcam.
