Snowbird: still skiing

SALT LAKE CITY ” The only Utah resort still open for skiing has so much snow it might be able to keep running until summer.

With 11 feet of snow on the ground, Snowbird said Wednesday it will stay open for skiing into June and possibly longer.

Snowbird has even fired up one of the chairlifts it had closed for the season, while shutting down its signature 125-passenger tram for maintenance.

The Little Cloud chair takes skiers almost to the top of the mountain from the bottom of a northwest-facing bowl.

Skiing was to have ended Memorial Day, but Snowbird President Bob Bonar says he’ll keep the resort open as long conditions allow.

Snowbird lifts have run as late as July 4. Bonar says it is too early to know if that’s possible this year.
