Last season marked Snowbird’s longest ever at 201 days, and it won’t be easily forgotten.
Powder day upon powder day turned 2004-2005 into one big fluffy blur, and the total snowfall
stacked up to 632 inches.
While Bird-loving powderhounds enjoyed a short summer season after the official closing day of
July 4, the resort was busy making drastic improvements. A new day lodge in Gad Valley, the
Creekside Lodge, was constructed and will open for the 2005-2006 season. It houses a cafe, ticket
office, ski school office, retail and rental space, and locker rooms—plus a huge deck to hang out
and enjoy a tasty 3.2 after a sublime day of shredding.
Snowbird also began work on a 595-foot-long, 12-foot-high tunnel connecting Peruvian Gulch to Mineral
Basin. It won’t be completed until next season when the new Peruvian Gulch high-speed quad is also installed,
but once the project is complete, beginner and intermediate skiers will be able to access more terrain more
Snowbird’s projected opening date for the 2005-2006 season is late November. Check out
