A Utah ski resort said thousands of people, many in patriotic red and blue swimsuits, came out to close the record-length season with Fourth of July skiing.
The Snowbird Ski and Summer resort said Monday's skiing, which saw many people dressed in bathing suits for the temperatures in the 50s and 60s, ended the record-setting 202-day skiing season, which surpassed the record of 201 days set in 2005, The (Salt Lake City) Deseret News reported Tuesday.
Emily Moench, communications manager for the resort, said Snowbird also experienced a record snowfall this year of 783 inches.
"It's a spectacular way to wrap up the season," Moench said.
Officials estimated the snow on the upper mountain was about 12 feet deep.
