Utah’s Little Cottonwood Canyon was blanketed by a decent helping of fall snow earlier this month.
Those with an uphill/touring setup have been reaping the benefits, but the early-season party is coming to an end at Snowbird.
Snowbird announced yesterday afternoon that all uphill travel is now closed as they prepare for opening day on November 30th.

Those of you that enjoy touring might be bummed, but this is a sign of good things to come. In short, it means that the downhill season is just around the corner at the ‘Bird!
Uphillers can still access Alta Ski Area for the time being with some restrictions.
Uphill travel, Wildcat and Albion parking lots are closed from 6pm–7:30am nightly as Alta prepares for their anticipated opening day on November 18th.
