DEER VALLEY RESORT SETS NEW ALL-TIME SNOWFALL RECORD WITH 485”
Extends 2022-2023 Ski Season to April 23, 2023
DEER VALLEY RESORT; PARK CITY, UTAH (March 16, 2023) – Deer Valley Resort has reached a new all-time snowfall record and is celebrating by extending the ski season for an extra week! Chairlifts on Deer Valley’s Bald Eagle and Bald Mountain will continue spinning beyond the resort’s original closing day through Sunday, April 23, 2023, conditions permitting.
Fresh snow received throughout the day on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, pushed the season’s total depth to 485” – more than 40 feet – which surpassed the previously held record of 484” recorded during the 2016-2017 winter season. Deer Valley’s official snow stake is located on Ontario ski run on Flagstaff Mountain at 9,000 feet elevation. While powder days have already been plentiful this winter, over five weeks now remain of Deer Valley’s ski season providing guests more opportunity to revel in the abundant snow and experience the Deer Valley difference.
“The historic snowfall has officially made this season our snowiest on record with over a month of skiing left. These incredible conditions also created our longest season by being able to extend ski operations beyond both our planned opening and closing days” said Deer Valley Resort President & COO Todd Bennett. “I am grateful to our dedicated employees who have kept the mountain operating and guests smiling. They’ve maintained their unparalleled service and commitment to teamwork through the challenging weather conditions this year.”
