PARK CITY, Utah — (January 2, 2004) Park City Mountain Resort rings in the New Year with record-breaking snowfall totals. November and December snowfall totals topped 250 inches, or close to 20 feet, leaving the mountain covered with the most snow since the 1983/1984 season.

“The snowfall in December is the most we’ve had in 20 years,” said Julie Hopkins, director of marketing and sales for the Resort. “We’re famous for our powder, and our guests have enjoyed all of this beautiful snow. In addition to great skiing and riding, it has blanketed the town and is very picturesque. ”

The Resort’s season snowfall total nearly tops that of last season’s total snowfall. The Resort opened one week early on November 14, having received more than 50 inches before opening day.
