Park City Mountain Resort Extends 2020-2021 Ski and Ride Season
Skiers and riders will have an extra week to get on the slopes at Park City Mountain Resort.
The 2020-2021 ski and ride season at PCMR was scheduled to end April 4, but the resort announced Tuesday they’re extending the season to April 11.
Jessica Miller, a spokesperson for the resort, said the extension is due - in large part - to resort employees and guests complying with safety protocols.
"I think all of us remember last season right around this time when we were making quite a different announcement about the end of the season having to close early because of COVID," Miller said. "And I think to extend this year to the 11th is such a testament to the hard work of our employees and of our guests."
She said the late season snow was also a deciding factor.
"We were really lucky in February with the amount of snow we got," she said. "We got just over five feet at the resort [in] February. So even though we had a low early season start to snow last month delivered, and I think we typically do see more snow storms throughout March. So hopefully Mother Nature will continue to deliver throughout March."
Masks and social distancing will still be required during the extended period. The resort will also continue to use their online reservation system. Miller said spots for the additional week should open Wednesday afternoon.
