I was lucky to 'escape the office' for an hour or so this morning to get up to Jupiter Peak for, what I think, was the best powder skiing of the season (so far). I'm not sure if it's some sort of April Fools prank or what, but the skiing and riding the past few days has been epic...and because of that we are extending our season by a week, with our scheduled closing day now pushed back to April 18, 2010!
Here are the details on our extended season:
“Thanks to the recent return to winter and an 87-inch settled base depth, the current conditions are the best they’ve been all year, which is why we’ve decided to stay open for an additional week,” said Peter Curtis, president and general manager of Park City Mountain Resort. “We will continue to deliver an exceptional guest experience, maintaining our grooming standards and high-level of guest service.” Beginning Monday, April 12, 2010 the resort will operate eight lifts including PayDay, Crescent, Bonanza, Silverlode, Thaynes, Jupiter, First Time and Three Kings. Pick’n Shovel, PayDay and King’s Crown terrain parks will also be open. Lift ticket pricing for the extended week of the season is as follows:
Adult (ages 13 and 64) $ 65
Seniors (ages 65 and up) $ 45
Children (ages 7-12) $ 40
The Canyons and Deer Valley Resort season pass holders will be able to purchase a single-day lift ticket to the Resort for $25 when they show their current 2009-2010 season pass. Additional Park City Mountain Resort hours of operations scheduled for the extended week of the season include the following:
Kristi’s Coffee Café 7:30am – 5:00pm
Legacy Sports 8:00am – 6:00pm
Legacy Café 10:30am – 3:00pm
Summit House 10:30 a.m. – 3:00pm
Legends Bar and Grill 11:00 a.m. – 7:00pm
Alpine Coaster noon – 4:00pm
Park City Mountain Rentals will be fully operational through April 18; however the Demo Center and Ski Valet will close as regularly scheduled on April 11. The long-range weather forecast is calling for snow off and on through April 18, 2010.
