Snowbird To Offer Skiing and Riding Through Memorial Day as Construction Breaks Ground for Resort Improvements

Snowbird, Utah – With over 400 inches of snow falling at Snowbird this season so far, including its third snowiest February on record, the Utah resort is poised for exceptional spring skiing and snowboarding conditions. In anticipation, Snowbird announces plans to keep its slopes open through Memorial Day, offering skiers and snowboarders an unparalleled experience during Snowbird Surf Season. Spring at Snowbird will be accompanied by a robust event line up, including the annual Plazapalooza music series, taking place every weekend from March 22 - May 19. 

As spring approaches, the mountain prepares to start construction on two major projects in Gad Valley, commencing on April 15. This will coincide with the closure of all lower Gad Valley terrain—which historically takes place every April—with Little Cloud chair and terrain remaining open. Construction will include the realignment of and upgrade to Wilbere Chair—turning it into a quad—as well as the highly anticipated update of Mid-Gad Restaurant. Mid-Gad Restaurant will undergo a two-year renovation that will result in a new building featuring a modern single-story floorplan and a new, expansive outdoor deck. 

"By announcing that we will be open through Memorial Day so early in March, we hope our guests can experience all that our late season has to offer—from skiing under blue skies to dancing on The Plaza Deck,” said Snowbird President and General Manager, Dave Fields. "We are also eager to begin construction in Gad Valley, breaking ground on two exciting projects that will greatly improve the guest experience for decades to come."

Last spring, Snowbird and Woodward successfully hosted the first ever Snowbird x Woodward spring collaboration. While both parties looked forward to the continuation of this collaboration for the 2023-24 season, this project has been put on hold as Snowbird focuses its resources on the success of these exciting resort improvements and Woodward focuses on springtime operations at its Woodward Mountain Centers and Woodward Mountain Park locations across the POWDR portfolio. Snowbird looks forward to the return of this collaboration in future seasons.
