Snowbird Continues Winter Operations After Father's Day

SNOWBIRD, Utah — Continuing one of its longest and snowiest seasons ever, Snowbird announced that the resort will stay open after Father’s Day and continue on a Saturday and Sunday basis as conditions permit. Meanwhile, as skiers and snowboarders continue to enjoy the late-season conditions, Snowbird will begin opening its summer activities.

“Snow levels and terrain coverage at the top of Snowbird are still so good we’ve made the decision to keep the ski season going,” Snowbird General Manager Dave Fields said. “With the fortunes of above-average seasonal snowfall and a relatively cool spring, Snowbird will be offering something for everyone this weekend with skiing, Brewfest and summer activities.”

This season, Snowbird received more than 711 inches of snowfall which has been protected by its north-facing slopes and cool spring temperatures. Snowbird will remain open Fridays through Sundays until Father’s Day on June 16, 2019 and then switch to Saturday and Sunday operations only with a final closing day still undetermined. Please note, Tram and lift schedules may change with little or no notice and up-to-date operation schedules can be found at snowbird.com.

Snowbird summer activities will open on Saturday, June 15, 2019.

“The start of summer activities will include many fan favorites such as the Alpine Slide, Vertical Drop, and Ropes Course, just to name a few,” Fields said.

The weekend will also mark the opening of the 11th Annual Brewfest , June 15 and 16, with more than 30 local and regional breweries serving samples of craft beers. Admission to Brewfest is always free; attendees must pay for all beverages. Each participating brewer will be sampling three to five beers highlighting their distinctive craft. Snowbird will provide food for purchase during Brewfest. More than two dozen local craft vendors will also have merchandise for sale. Live music will be provided each day from noon to 6 pm.

Specifically for Father’s Day, Snowbird will feature a special BBQ  for dads with live music on the Plaza Deck and a special brunch menu at the Atrium in the Cliff Lodge. For reservations and more info visit snowbird.com.

The longest season in Utah means Snowbird is also offering discounted tickets for the duration. Guests can present a 2018-19 season pass from any other mountain, and receive a specially priced $50 lift ticket. Check the  spring pricing webpage  for up to date information.

Averaging more than 500 inches of annual snowfall per year and conveniently located just 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport, Snowbird is North America’s most accessible alpine resort destination.
