For the Record: Are you planning on skiing after the Park City resorts close?
Each week, The Park Record asks For the Record, encouraging residents and visitors to weigh in on a topic of interest. Next week, Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort will stop their lifts after another ski season. The Park Record previously asked if people wanted the resorts to extend the season, and this week, we want to know if there are people who plan to go elsewhere to get their late-season fix, or if they’ll hang the skis up when the resorts close.

Chris Lacasce, Trailside
“It depends on the weather. We’ve had enough skiing, right? So if the weather’s good, sure. If not, no worries. I’ve got kids so I’m not a hardcore (skier), I’m indifferent at this point.”
Kayte Glennon, Sandy
“Probably not. A couple of gals I work with would say yes. I’m done with the ski season, but that’s just me. I travel a lot, so that’s what I’m doing (in the spring).”
Troy Rutten, Pinebrook
“Definitely. It’s been such a great snow year, right? I’ve got an Ikon Pass, so I’ll have access to Alta or Snowbird to continue skiing into May. I tour as well in the backcountry so I’m sure I’ll go out for a few days there.”
Kaz Sinnott, Pinebrook
“I mean, it kind of depends. I’m a big car guy too, so after the season closes, if it were just me that I would call it quits and wait until next year, but if I really get that itch then I might go once or twice.”
Chris Garrison, Prospector
“I have the Ikon Pass, and Brighton and Solitude are open for another week or so, and Alta will be open on the weekends, so that’s my plan. I know a lot of people that are going to hike up and ski down here.”
