After a promisingly frigid October yielded to serious November thaw, it’s finally snowing outside. With that unofficial reemergence of winter, comes the official beginning of ski season in the Beehive State. Brighton was first out of the gates, spinning their lifts for the public for the first time on Tuesday, November 19. Other resorts throughout the state have been diligently making snow while battling unseasonably warm temperatures and unfavorable preseason conditions to open their own White Ribbons of Death. Alas, after a cavalcade of adjustments and revisions, updated Utah ski resort opening dates have been announced and are quickly approaching.
Brighton is already open, Park City opens on Friday, November 22, and most of the remainder anticipate opening after Thanksgiving as conditions allow. Read on for complete Utah ski resort opening dates for the 2019/2020 season.
