Huntsville, UT – This weekend there will be not one, but two Utah resorts open for skiing and riding. Snowbasin Resort near Huntsville announced over the weekend that they will reopen for weekends only for the first time ever beginning this Saturday and continuing as long as snow conditions allow.
Skiers and Riders will be able to upload and download on Needles Gondola to access multiple intermediate runs off of Middle Bowl Triple from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Maintenance scheduled for Needles Gondola has been recently completed which will allow access to the Middle Bowl Triple,” explained Kent Lyons, General Manager of Snowbasin. “Cool temperatures and a significant amount of late season snow has kept our base over 100 inches deep at mid-mountain so it only seems natural for Snowbasin to re-open on weekends.”
Season passes for the 2011-12 winter season valid for this month’s skiing and riding may be purchased starting this Saturday. Single day lift tickets are selling for $35. Passes from the 2010-11 season will not be honored. Barbeque food will be available.
