Utah Ski Area Re-opening in May For The First Time

The world famous Utah ski resort of Sundance, established and owned for many years by Hollywood actor Robert Redford, is re-opening for skiing in May for the first time in its history.

Sundance Mountain Resort is reopening for what in the US is the Mother’s Day weekend. The resort reported 520 inches of snowfall this winter, a third more than its previous record of 390 inches set in the winter of 1992/93, and a lot is still lying on the slopes.

Sundance will be open for skiing and snowboarding on Saturday, May 13th, and Sunday, May 14th. Lifts will spin from 10am-2pm daily with tickets costing $49.  The resort plans to open terrain on Back Mountain in the Bear Claw section on the skier’s left of Red’s Lift and more terrain could open if conditions allow. The resort had originally ended its season five weeks ago back on April 8th, 2023.

Utah had a record snowfall ski season with a number of resorts posting more the 800 inches (20+ metres) total snowfall, with one, Alta, Passing 900 inches (nearly 23 metres).

Several are still open including Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude, the latter having posted both its most snowfall and longest season ever in 22-23.
