SALT LAKE CITY — Sunday marks schedule change day for the Utah Transit Authority, and it also means that ski bus service to resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons has begun.

Ski bus service to Sundance and Ogden area resorts will begin on December 19.

A press release from UTA also states they have added several new ski shelters to help patrons stay warm as they wait for the bus, and a heated shelter with lights was constructed near the Cliff Lodge at Snowbird in partnership with the resort. A ski shelter has also been added at the Park and Ride lot located at 8200 South Wasatch Blvd. A new, larger structure replaced an existing shelter at a Park and Ride at 6200 South and Wasatch Boulevard.

The release states: “Many ski resorts allow you to ride select UTA services free with your ski pass. Season pass holders at Alta, Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude can ride TRAX and ski buses using their ski pass as fare. Sundance season pass holders can ride route 880 and connecting bus routes free with their season pass. Snowbasin season pass holders can ride UTA ski buses to the resort for a $10 processing fee, and Powder Mountain season pass holders can ride ski buses for $30.”
