Mayflower Mountain in Utah is next door to Deer Valley, a resort that bans snowboarders. It seems it will follow suit. NEW
Deer Valley may go into a partnership with Mayflower Mountain to run the lifts and if so then the ban on snowboarders would likely be extended to the new area.
The issue is reported in the Park Record.
The topic came up during a recent panel discussion about the ski industry held at the Park City, Utah library.
When Todd Bennett, the president and chief operating officer at Deer Valley, said Mayflower Mountain would continue the ski-only policy, it drew applause from the audience, according to the Park Record article.
PlanetSKI visited Mayflower Mountain back in January 2020 to see the development of the new ski area.
Elsewhere in the Utah, the resort of Alta in the Little Cottonwood Canyon has a ban on snowboarders using the lifts.
Mad River Glen in Vermont also has a ban on snowboarders.
