Snowbird Ski Resort ended their 2018/19 season today, marking the official close of ski season in Utah.  It was the fifth time the resort has been open on the Fourth of July in their 48 year history. Skiers and snowboarders converged on the mountain to get their taste of what it’s like to ski in July. Their answer? Costumes, sunshine, long lines and just enough snow to get back to the lift.

The dispute continues over Snowbird’s event permit for serving beer, wine and cocktails at Oktoberfest. One lawyer is hoping the resort will be barred from serving alcohol.

The state liquor commission may not let Snowbird Ski Resort serve beer at its annual Oktoberfest this year. The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control board laid out tighter guidelines this week for granting single-event permits to businesses. Snowbird’s General Manager argues that move could affect business as well as the community.
