SNOWBIRD, UT – Just as a powerful winter storm blanketed Snowbird with 18 inches of new snow, the resort announced its best lodging rates of the season - Snow Sale, including rooms for as little as $99 plus taxes and resort fees.
“We have some of the best conditions and best deals in the country right now,” said Dave Fields, Snowbird’s Vice President of Resort Operations. “The incredible lodging deals match the fantastic skiing, making it the perfect time to book a winter vacation.”
Snowbird guests have enjoyed top-to-bottom skiing and riding from the Tram since opening day and consistent storms have allowed the Utah resort that averages 500 inches a year to steadily open more terrain. Snowbird plans to have open nine of its 11 lifts by the weekend, including the new Little Cloud chairlift, Gad 2 and Mineral Basin. This accounts for approximately 85 percent of Snowbird terrain.
“The new Little Cloud high speed quad carries skiers and snowboarders to South Ridge in about four minutes, giving quick and easy access to amazing terrain and powder,” said Fields.
Snow Sale rates are for rooms at one of Snowbird’s four lodging properties, and children 12 and under ski free with this promotion. Reservations may be made by calling (800) 453-3000. Reservations are non-refundable and non-changeable once purchased. Details and fine print may be found at Snowbird.com/snowsale/. The sale ends this Friday, Dec. 14, 2012 at midnight MST.
