Park City Mountain Resort delays opening day

A press release on Nov. 14 announced that Park City Mountain resort will open on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 23) instead of on Friday, Nov. 17.

“Park City Mountain is dedicated to providing our guests the best early-season ski and ride experience,” said Park City Mountain’s chief operating officer, Bill Rock. “We’ve seen several strong nights of early-season snowmaking and with a favorable weather forecast over the next 10 days, our expert snowmaking team is ready to make snow at every opportunity that weather permits. We look forward to providing our guests with a great opening day ski and ride experience in time for Thanksgiving.”

PCMR also pushed the season back last year from Nov. 14 to Nov. 26.

“Last year’s season demonstrated that early-season conditions are not indicative of season-long snow conditions,” the release said. “After opening on Nov. 26 last season, Park City Mountain recorded 455 inches of snow at the Jupiter snow stake, 100 inches over the 355 inch seasonal average.”
