Monday (02/27/23): 

  • HWY 158 travel will become increasingly worst as the day continues, with snow rates expected to be around 1 inch an hour. No road closures are expected during operating hours. If snow rates and winds remain high, a closure could happen at any time during the day. 

Tuesday (02/28/23): 

  • No road closure is currently planned. However, a closure could happen of snow rates and wind speeds increase. The operation team will work diligently to make sure the road can stay open. Stay tuned to our website, social media, and the Ops Blog for updates. 

Wednesday (03/01/23): 

  • Pending on forecasted snow and overall mitigation efforts and results, the road will most likely not close at any time. 

Lifts and Terrain:

The operation teams will be working hard to keep primary terrain open throughout the storm. Secondary terrain, like Powder Country, Woody's World, Paradise, Cobabe Canyon, and Lightning Ridge, might close and open throughout the storm. Tertiary terrain like James Peak will remain closed throughout the storm. 

Current Lift and Terrain Status

Monday (02/27/23): 

  • Delayed openings to all secondary terrain should be expected. Storm intensity could dictate unplanned lift or terrain closures. High winds and direction could also affect lifts. However, current forecasted winds are remaining under the threshold. 

Tuesday (02/28/23): 

  • The operational team will be working hard to open all primary terrain by 9am. Some delay can be expected. Pending mitigation efforts and overall snowfall, secondary terrain could have a delayed opening or could remain closed. 

Wednesday (03/01/23): 

  • All terrain, besides tertiary terrain, will most likely open by 9am. 

UTA and Parking:

Due to high snowfall rates, parking lots will fill in. All guests should have higher clearance vehicles. Guests are highly encouraged to ride the UTA Ski Bus 674.
