It turns out that lift lines can get pretty huge in Utah when you’re the only game in town. Snowbird reopened on Saturday after being out of action for a few weeks. With minimal snow at lower elevations, the Tram was the only lift that was able to operate out of Snowbird’s two base areas.

Zahm tagged us in a video on Twitter of the lift line on Saturday over at the Bird. To reach the skiable terrain over at Little Cloud, guests had to ride up the Tram. This resulted in a lift line that stretched over the bridge that goes to the Snowbird Center. Clearly, everyone was there to experience the new balcony.

Regardless, I still think it’s awesome that Snowbird reopened for June skiing. With the amount of snowmelt that they saw over the past couple of weeks, it could have been easy just to announce that they weren’t going to reopen for skiing. Instead, they gave people two more days to ski corn snow, and we should all be grateful for that.

The reason for sharing this video is a reminder for those to prepare ahead for limited terrain and lift openings, especially during the late season. If you arrive too late, you’ll be waiting.

While ski season has wrapped at Snowbird, they now have a multitude of summer activities that are open daily. With ski season concluding, the lines to check out the new tram and its balcony will be much shorter.
