Snowbird Moves Opening Day to Friday, Nov. 18

Snowbird, Utah – Snowbird received 32 inches of snowfall from recent storms and over seven feet of snow since October, resulting in a 67-inch base and exactly what it needs to open early. Snowbird’s new opening date is set for Friday, Nov. 18.

“I haven’t seen early-season snowfall like this in years and we plan to take advantage of it,” said Snowbird President and General Manager Dave Fields. “Our teams are working hard to get the mountain ready and we’re excited to start the season with such a strong base and what will be great ski conditions.”

Skiing and riding will open in Gad Valley with normal operating hours, 9 am – 4 pm Lift tickets will be available at both the Snowbird Center and Creekside Ticket offices or online at

Snowbird’s new Tram cabins, the newest of which was installed on Saturday, are being commissioned by crews from Doppelmayr and are not expected to be ready for Snowbird’s new opening day but shortly thereafter.
