Experiencing one of its best seasons in a decade, Sunlight Mountain Resort will extend its operations one more weekend.Regular snow dumps have kept the mountain in mid-season shape with powder and packed powder conditions and 100 percent of its terrain open.

Also, showers and snow are forecast for the area this weekend, which may add to the great snow.Sunlight will reopen Saturday and Sunday. Season passes are still valid for the extended weekend, and daily lift tickets are $25 for the mountain’s final weekend.

There will be no shuttle transportation to Sunlight Mountain Resort this weekend. Make plans or catch a ride to Sunlight to ski out the season.For more information, call 945-7491 or visit
