It’s gonna be May.

We’re officially one month into the spring season, but Mother Nature is still showing us that winter is here! After a record-breaking March with a 30% increase in skier visits compared to the prior season, we are excited to announce we’re extending our season into May. Snowbowl plans to operate April 26-28 and May 3-5 from 10am to 4pm, although a closing date has not yet been announced. The current season ranks as the second highest year in the past 21 years with 332 inches of snowfall. With the extension into May, Snowbowl will tie with the 2016-2017 season as the longest season in recorded history.

Top 5 Snowfall in the past 21 Years

2004-05         460”
2018-19           332″
1997-98           330”
2016-17           329”
2009-10          321”

The incredible amount of snowfall we’ve received this season means that even now in mid-April, our base remains over 80″ deep with the majority of the mountain open, including Upper Bowl. Check out some of the conditions from the past week below!
