Solitude Was Forced To Close Summit Express Due To Wet Slide Avalanche Risk

By

^Summit Express at Solitude Mountain Resort

Solitude Mountain Resort was forced to close its Summit Express lift over the weekend due to avalanche conditions. The resort reported that unseasonably warm temps created wet slide avalanche risks across the resort.

Weather.com shows that temps reached well into the 50s (Fahrenheit) over the weekend.

Check out the pretty large slide that Solitude triggered below the Summit Express Lift over the weekend.

“With our unseasonably warm temps, Summit Express closed yesterday so patrol could manage potential wet slide avalanches. As you can see, they got some results. Summit will remain closed today for more of the same.”

Remember to thank ski patrollers for their hard work and stay safe out there friends!
