Park City Mountain Announces Update to the Start of the 2016-17 Season

14 November 2016
PARK CITY, Utah. — Nov. 14, 2016 — Park City Mountain announced today that its opening day, originally planned for Friday, Nov. 18, will be rescheduled to Saturday, Nov. 26.
 
“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. “While unseasonably warm weather has not made it possible for recent snowmaking operations, our team is ready to fire up the snow guns at every opportunity as weather gets cooler. We look forward to opening as soon as we feel we can provide our guests with good quality snow conditions.”

According to Open Snow forecaster Evan Thayer, the forecast looks to shift in favor of skiers and snowboarders, including a cold storm later this week that leaves us with “decent accumulations possible in the mountains”. He adds, “We finally have a long-range outlook that features good news. Additional storms are possible through the end of the month.”

“It’s important to remember that during the 2008-09 season, Park City Mountain rescheduled opening day to after Thanksgiving and ended up with 444 inches at the Jupiter snow stake. The average at that stake is 357 inches,” Rock added.
