SNOWBIRD, UT — Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is celebrating the close of the 2012-13 ski and snowboard season with live music and festivities this weekend, culminating in a party on the Plaza Deck on Memorial Day.

“Snowbird’s closing weekend celebration is a fantastic way to end the season, with guests carrying on a tradition of skiing in costumes or T-shirts and shorts,” said Dave Fields, Vice President of Resort Operations. “We’re excited to stay open for so long, and then open summer activities in just two weeks.”

Offering the longest ski and snowboard season in Utah, Snowbird was open for 182 days of skiing and snowboarding this season. The Little Cottonwood Canyon resort received 410 inches of snow since November 1, 2012.

The Tram and Little Cloud chairlift will be open for advanced skiers and snowboarders. It is advised that all skiers and snowboarders ride the Tram down at the end of the day due to melting conditions on the lower part of the mountain. Lift tickets will be $65.
