What do snow conditions in Utah look like in June?
IMG_7357
Well Richard from the ski desk at UtahState.com drove to Snowbird Ski Resort on Wednesday June 10, 2020 to take a look. Snowbird is a close neighbor to Alta Ski Resort. Both of these “World Class” ski resorts are located in Little Cottonwood Canyon which is east of Salt Lake City. Pictures don’t lie and as you can see there is still plenty of snow as a result of a healthy winter and spring snowfall.

In fact, there were a few die hard skiers and snowboarders who hiked up the slopes since the ski lifts are officially closed for the season. Keep in mind that Snowbird is also a summer resort with many outdoor activities for the whole family. We fully expect the approaching ski season to be awesome.

IMG_7180 (1)
You can still enjoy the snow! Even though the Utah ski resorts closed early this year due to COVID-19, we had a wonderful ski season up until the closure. Sadly there is still tons of snow in the mountains of Utah. Take a look at these pictures. Look closely and the ski slopes you can see are at Solitude ski resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon Utah. Over the mountain is Little Cottonwood Canyon where Snowbird and Alta ski resorts are located.
 IMG_7171
We didn’t want the snow to go to waste so two of the skier / reservation agents at UtahState.com took these pictures while hiking with micro spikes on May 11, 2020. Cross country skiing would have been awesome as well. The next ski season is coming soon. For the best deals for next ski season call the team at www.UtahState.com in Layton Utah.

Ski Resorts Filled With Snow and Not Skiiers

Snowbird and COVID-19

Snowbird Utah is awesome. One of the best ski resorts in the world! Latest news from Snowbird: “COVID-19 is impacting all of us in different and personal ways, and we extend our thankfulness and appreciation to our community and in particular to the healthcare workers for their role on the front lines. Specific to Snowbird, the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 first meant a temporary suspension of operations which, with the escalating seriousness of the public health crisis, ultimately resulted in our indefinite suspension of operations on March 21, 2020″.

Park City Streets Empty Following Early Ski Resort Closure

Park City, Utah is a ghost town with near empty streets due to COVID 19 restrictions put in place. Many Snelgrove Travel and UtahState.com customers are disappointed the Utah ski season was cut short. Friday marked day one of the Summit County “Stay at Home” order and a empty Main Street in Park City showed residents are complying.

Park Chity

“It’s a little eerie,” said Park City resident Meghan Gies, who was walking her dog. “It’s nice when it calms down, but this is a little too calm”. This reflects the sentiments of the staff at Snelgrove Travel in Layton Utah and the ski desk at UtahState.com

Summit County was the first county in Utah to have such an order to flatten the COVID 19 curve. County health officials reported 102 confirmed cases of the virus on Friday, the second-highest total of any county in Utah.

The order is not a complete lockdown or a shelter in place, and officials wanted to remind Park City area residents they can leave their homes for essentials like food and gas while maintaining a six-foot social distance.

Park City Police Captain Phil Kirk reported that police have ramped up patrols, making sure people are complying in areas like the business district and where people tend to exercise. For more information contact SnelgroveTravel.com 801-544-1800 or the ski desk at UtahState.com. With offices in Layton Utah, we are here to serve you.
