Utah Ski Resorts Get Early-Season Snow, Announce More Opening Dates

November 7, 2017 | 0 Comments

Ski Utah says that many of its resorts will be opening in under two weeks due to plentiful early season snow across the state. Over the past few days Utah received a healthy early season snow-storm. The big winner was Beaver Mountain in Northern Utah with over 20” since Saturday. With more snow on the way and cold temperatures to keep the snow guns on full force, Utah is looking to start the 2017-18 season in less than two weeks.

“Receiving snow and cold temperatures like this a few weeks before the lifts start spinning helps the resorts open with a great product,” says CEO/President of Ski Utah, Nathan Rafferty. “It also helps convenience the destination skier to book a trip to Utah this winter.”

Ski Utah is a membership association representing Utah’s $1.4 billion-dollar wintersports industry, including 14 alpine ski resorts and a membership of over 250 industry partners. The organization has been creating brand awareness of and demand for the Utah wintersports product since its inception in 1978. Ski Utah’s primary functions are concentrated in marketing, public policy and public relations. Information about Ski Utah and its members can be found at
