Brighton and Solitude resorts in Utha open for the upcoming skiing season
Brighton and Solitude ski resorts in Utah are ready to open this season after receiving 36 inches of snowfall so far.
Nick Como, spokesperson for Solitude's resort said: "Solitude's opening day is on Thursday, November 10, with three lifts - Moonbeam, Apex and Link."
"We're looking good, we're really excited!" added Jared Winkler of nearby Brighton Resort.
Mr Winkler further stated: "We have about 24 inches of snow in our mid-mountain area, so it should be pretty fun. We're planning on opening the Explorer, Crest and Majestic chairlifts with limited runs off of each."
Utah's State Tourism officials expect that the La Nina weather phenomenon will replicate last winter's snowfall.
Nathan Rafferty, president of Ski Utah, marketing group said: "If we get half of the snow we had last year we'll have a great year."
Action-minded travellers who hold expensive
sports travel insurance should take adequate precaution before venturing into such adventures.
