*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Happy New Year! With lots of new snow and plenty of wintertime fun, 2024 is off to a great start here in the Wasatch Back. The MLK holiday weekend and Sundance Film Festival are fast approaching, ensuring that the next few weeks around town will be action packed.

Check out the latest news and upcoming events. We hope to see you around town or out on the slopes!
 
Local photographer Brent Haddock has taken some stunning photos of our winter season thus far. This photo was taken on January 9th on an 11º morning at Wallsburg Bay in Deer Creek State Park.
NEW YEAR, NEW SNOW!

The storm cycle has returned to Utah! We got a nice refresher earlier this week, and a parade of winter storms are forecast to dump a lot more snow on our mountains during the next several days!

Visit the Ski Utah website for the latest forecast and current conditions at our resorts. And for backcountry enthusiasts, make sure to check the Utah Avalanche Center's latest ratings and observations.

PARK CITY RESORT'S

SNOW PARK PLANS MOVING FORWARD at DEER VALLEY®

Development plans for a new ski-in/ski-out village at Deer Valley's Snow Park have received a key approval from the Park City Council. The Council unanimously agreed to vacate a portion of the public right-of-way on Deer Valley Drive in order to accommodate a master plan that includes a ski beach with hotels, commercial space, a new transit hub, and some condos.
From here the master plan will move to the Park City Planning Commission for review. The decision to vacate the road will remain contingent on the approval of the full project and the partnership agreement. There is also a two-year sunset clause on the road vacation if no action occurs.

For those interested in learning more about the plans for Snow Park, Deer Valley will be hosting an open house this evening, January 10th, from 4 - 6 pm at Snow Park Lodge. Deer Valley is asking for people to RSVP by emailing [email protected].
