Cherry Peak postpones opening until next season

LOGAN — A northern Utah ski resort that was expected to open this year, announced due to construction delays and permit issues, they won’t be able to open until next season.

In a press release, Cherry Peak Resort announced Friday that skiing will officially be open beginning in the 2015-2016 season. The lodge design improvements, ski lift and snow making expansions resulted in some unanticipated delays.

Cherry Peak CEO John Chadwick said the upgrades will improve a customer’s experience at the resort. They will also honor all ski vouchers and passes next season.

In January, the resort successfully completed load testing and certification on their ski lifts. They also successfully tested their snow making system.

Chadwick said construction of the Grand Lodge has been slowed due to the increased size and unexpected permitting issues related to a number of upgrades.

Cherry Peak Resort is located north of Richmond.
