How great has this ski season been in Utah? A ski resort that has been around for 41 years has just surpassed its all-time snowfall record. Deer Valley Resort announced that they have reached 485 inches of snowfall, which surpasses the previous record of 484″, which was set during the 2016-17 season.
To celebrate this record-breaking season, Deer Valley will be moving its closing day to April 23rd. They will keep the chairlifts on Deer Valley’s Bald Eagle and Bald Mountain open through their new projected closing date. Deer Valley also opened early, as deep snowfall allowed them to open for passholders back on November 28th.
Here’s what Todd Bennett, who is the President & COO of Deer Valley Resort, had to say about their historic season:
“The historic snowfall has officially made this season our snowiest on record with over a month of skiing left. These incredible conditions also created our longest season by being able to extend ski operations beyond both our planned opening and closing days. I am grateful to our dedicated staff who have kept the mountain operating and guests smiling. They’ve maintained their unparalleled service and commitment to teamwork through the challenging weather conditions this year.”
It’s been a special season for Deer Valley, and many more great days are on the horizon.
