Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort offers 3,240 vertical feet of award-winning terrain enjoyed by all skill levels of skiers and riders. The resort is only 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport, making same-day skiing and flying a reality. While consistently ranking high in snow, terrain and accessibility, Snowbird provides an equally impressive experience off the slopes, resulting in ski vacations as memorable as the mountain.
