Mother Nature helped Park City Mountain Resort welcome the start of the 2010-2011 winter season, today, November 20, 2010, with energetic skiers and snowboarders, diverse terrain and natural snowfall! Guests camped out overnight at PayDay, First Time and Three Kings lifts to receive the coveted “First Chair” t-shirts, as well as the bragging rights that go along with riding the first chair. The three lifts serviced five runs, including the early season terrain park with 16 jib features and a 25-foot jump. According to the National Weather Service, a winter storm warning is in effect until Wednesday, November 24, with up to three feet of snow expected.
