The Utah ski season keeps going, with plans for Snowbird to remain open until 20 June.

Recent late spring snowfalls and continuing flurries have meant the resort’s Little Cottonwood Canyon area still has good skiing and riding to offer. Weather permitting, the lifts there will keep running at weekends.

The extension marks 199 days of skiing and riding for the 2009/10 season, two days short of the resort’s 2004/05 record – when the slopes stayed open until an amazing 4 July! Snowbird has received 10.5m of snowfall this season, exceeding the resort’s annual average by 223cm. Most of this has fallen in the latter part of the winter; overall the US had a none-too-special start to the season

Snowbird President Bob Bonars said: “The coverage on the mountain is remarkable for this time of year, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer high-quality skiing and riding well into June.”

Snowbird is currently offering skiing from three lifts at weekends for a reduced price of $62.
