Snowbird Ski Resort
Featuring the largest vertical rise in Utah,
more than 3,200 feet, with 11 lifts servicing 89 trails, Snowbird Ski Resort
offers a challenging and thrilling brand of skiing that will entertain visitors
of all abilities. The resort, just six miles up Little Cottonwood Canyon, hosts
a variety of terrain, from bowls, chutes, mogul runs, gentle rolling trails,
and an exciting terrain park.
Skiers and snowboarders of every skill level will
find trails that are just their speed. Intermediate riders can warm up on
Chip’s Run or take Lupine Loop over to Mineral Basin on the backside
of the resort and practice your carving on the tranquil mountainside. Advanced
skiers and riders will find a wealth of black diamond and double-black diamond
runs to push their abilities to the very edge.
Once you’ve explored all the trails and
had your fill of crisp mountain powder, you can head over to the tram to find
the Tram Club. This wonderful après ski hangout is a great place to
warm up and grab a beer and a bite to eat.
Snowbird is located just 29 miles from Salt Lake
City International Airport, so travel to and from the canyon is simple and
hassle free. There’s lodging near the resort, or you can stay in the
Salt Lake Valley and be just a short drive or bus ride from a number of
resorts. You can ski at a new resort every day of the week.
