Signs of the Times (SOTT) is reporting that the Snowbird Sky Resort near Salt Lake City in Utah is celebrating an extended winter with well above average snow for the year.

Snowbird’s long-term average snowfall during the year is 500 inches, but with the recent three feet of snow that fell during the past three days, it now tops its normal seasonal snowpack by 100 inches or more.

“This morning [May 8], Snowbird announced that it had surpassed 600 inches of seasonal snowfall and—weather and conditions permitting—will remain open through at least Memorial Day,” said SOTT, reposting a Powder article on Snowbird’s good fortune. “‘We got 3 more inches overnight, bringing our storm total up to 36 inches,’” the resort’s daily snow report reads. “‘This refresh should set us up really well to keep skiing some great snow through the remainder of our spring season.’”

Snowbird is not the only Western ski area to benefit from the late-season snow. The SOTT reports that the Brighton and Solitude Mountain resorts have also extended their ski seasons through at least mid-May.
