SALT LAKE CITY — Much of Utah is seeing balmy weather, and unseasonably warm temperatures have prompted the Snowbird ski resort to suspend skiing and related winter activities just days after opening the season.

The resort’s website says it will continue to operate its aerial tram but “make every effort” to resume skiing once cooler temperatures return.

Highs in the Salt Lake City area are expected to remain in the 60s or even the low 70s through Monday, with many locations reaching daily records.

The National Weather Service’ Salt Lake City office says high temperatures Sunday are expected to be more typical for mid-October, not late November.

Utah locations that set record highs Saturday included Bryce Canyon and Cedar City airports, Duchesne and Kodachrome Basin State Park.
