Snowbird to Open This Weekend

From the SLC Tribune:

Snowbird announced Wednesday it will operate the Tram and two lifts, Gadzoom and Mid-Gad, starting at 9 a.m. Friday, the second-earliest opening in the resort's 38-year history. More than 3 feet of snow has fallen there this month, building upon a base created by snowmaking. Early season all-day lift tickets will cost $62. "This storm and the subsequent lake effect have provided a timely blanket of snow in Little Cottonwood Canyon," said Snowbird President Bob Bonar. "Skiing early season powder is a great way to kick off the season." The Regulator Johnson run off of the top of Hidden Peak will be open for skiing, along with Big Emma and Bassackwards.


OK, that is kinda crazy. But it does open skiing for the SLC area and that is a good thing.

Sounds good, are the ticket prices likely to stay the same even if there are issues with snow coverage?

Usually they are a little lower due to snow coverage. Some places not by much, but others they are around half price.
