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.

$62 EFFING DOLLARS FOR A PARTIALLY OPEN RESORT?

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.
