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.

As skiers and snowboarders gear up for the season and what looks to be a snowy Thanksgiving weekend, snow safety forecasters are hoping this will be the third season in a row without avalanche-caused deaths in the backcountry.
