Snowbasin, UT (November 23, 2015) - To kick off their 75th Anniversary Season, Snowbasin Resort will open to the public on Wednesday, November 25, with top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding beginning at 9:00am. With recent snowfall combined with extensive snowmaking, Snowbasin Resort will offer 8 trails accessed by 3 lifts.
This past summer, Snowbasin Resort’s expanded their snowmaking system which now is capable of producing snow up to 15 times longer than prior seasons. This allows for more efficiency during cold temperature periods and the ability to open more skiing and snowboarding terrain sooner than in previous years. The resort’s dedicated snowmaking staff fired up the snow guns on November 5 after receiving help from Mother Nature with over 19 inches of natural snow.
To honor their 75th Anniversary Season, the first 75 guests to board Needles Gondola on Opening Day will receive a commemorative beanie. The official birthday celebration will start on November 27 as Snowbasin Resort celebrates their Proclamation Day honoring the day that the resort was proclaimed as a business 75 years prior. At 8:30am, the City of Ogden and Mayor Caldwell will be on-hand to officially declare the date as “Snowbasin Day”.
Early season lift ticket rates are available starting at $39 for Youth and $75 for Adults. Snowbasin Resort will continue to expand terrain coverage as conditions allow. For more information, call Snowbasin Resort’s Snow Phone at 801.620.1100 or visit www.snowbasin.com for the latest updates.
