Avoid Backcountry, Avalanche Forecasters Warn

The untouched backcountry snow may be tempting, but be careful: Utah Avalanche Forecasters warn that the weakened snowpacks found in the backcountry come with increased risk of avalanches. Regardless of how seasoned you are, experience and gear can’t save you from an avalanche.

Utah’s famous snow is fun to shred, but quick to dread for those who aren’t careful. Thankfully, we have teams of experts analyzing the slopes and snowfall to ensure everyone’s safety. Be sure to heed all warning signs and announcements–and avoid the backcountry slopes!

If you’re ever unsure whether skiing a certain area will be safe or not call the team at UtahState.com at (801)544-1800 and one of our agents will be able to answer all of your questions. UtahState.com: Utah’s #1 Ski Agency!

Friday 12/17Salt Lake Snow Storm! Look Out!

Another “BIG DUMP” storm has arrived in Utah creating awesome powder ski conditions in Salt Lake at Brighton, Solitude, Alta, Snowbird and Park City. Up to an additional 12 inches of snow is expected at Utah ski resorts on top of the snow totals from earlier this week. The staff of skiers and ski reservation agents at UtahState.com can’t wait to share the ski slopes. Temperatures in the next 48 hours will be cold, with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s. Look for a few inches in the northern valleys, 3-6″ on the benches, and 6-12″ in the Cottonwood Canyons. Skies will clear out for the weekend. These are optimum ski conditions to experience the “Greatest Snow on Earth”. To book that badly needed ski vacation call the team at UtahState.com 801-544-1800. We feature the famous “Utah Ski Bum” vacation packages and ski deals to fit any budget.

Utah Ski Industry and National Labor Shortage

Utah has had a very wet October. The snowpack is above normal and all major Utah ski resorts are slated to open in late November. At the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, Snowbird and Alta are slated to open Nov. 20, 2021. The team at UtahState.com has great deals on Utah ski trips. Visit UtahState.com

Across the board, most resorts are still hiring for all sorts of positions: ski patrol, rental technicians, line cooks, building maintenance, wait staff, lift operations — Sundance Resort even has a listing for a “blower of recycled glass”

“We’ve certainly opened before with less,” said Brandon Ott, marketing manager, who said the resort could bump up its opening date a few days, “but we couldn’t open tomorrow, we couldn’t open next week. Because of staffing, and also because of supply chain issues.” Call the ski desk at UtahState.com at 801-544-1800 for all your Utah ski needs. We are #1 for Utah ski vacations. 

“Just about any job you could possibly think of on the ski hill is going to be open,” said Alison Palmintere, director of communications for Ski Utah. For the Snowbird ski package this is it. For discount Snowbird lift tickets this is where you can find the lowest prices. 

Snowbird is “hiring in almost every department right now,” said Sarah Sherman, communications manager. And both Deer Valley and Alta have openings, especially in their food and beverage departments. www.UtahState.com in Layton Utah. Call 801-544-1800. 

Greater Than Usual Snowfall Possible for Northern Utah

With a new year comes new weather patterns–and this year’s are looking optimistic for Northern Utah’s ski season–near most of our resorts around Park City and Salt Lake.

While weather prediction isn’t perfect and there’s always a chance of minimal snowfall, trends are looking good for Utah. The jet stream has been generous these past few weeks, gracing our mountains with plenty of snow, we should be set for a large amount of precipitation in the coming months.
