RESORT DESCRIPTION:
Unmatched accessibility, over 500 inches a year of legendary Little Cottonwood Canyon powder (and 600 inches-plus in the last three seasons) and 2,500 acres of heart-pounding terrain combine to make Snowbird an unparalleled Utah destination. Snowbird’s famous Aerial Tram accesses nearly 3,000 vertical feet in only eight minutes, while the back bowls of Mineral Basin connect skiers with neighboring Alta for the ultimate powder experience. With a season that typically lasts from mid-November to Memorial Day and sometimes beyond, Snowbird offers more skiing than any other Utah resort.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS:

• 12/24 and 12/31: Torchlight Parade
• 1/20-1/22: The North Face Masters of Snowboarding
• 3/8-3/13: World Freeskiing Championships
• April: Junior Freeskiing Nationals

TERRAIN BREAKDOWN:

Snowbird has 2,500 acres (4,700 when combined with neighboring Alta) of some of the best intermediate and expert terrain in North America. From the steep chutes and trees of Mount Baldy to the wide-open bowls of Mineral Basin, Snowbird offers something for every powder hound.

POWDER PERSPECTIVE:

The Tram is certainly the ticket to ride at Snowbird, but on days when the line is too long, you feel like sitting, or want to ride up with just your friends, migrate to the Gad Valley. Sure, the pitches are shorter, but the tree lines are fun and technical, and it often gets over-looked by the locs. For après, grab a tall-boy on the plaza before heading into the Tram Club or down valley. If our Jaded Local knew how much cooler Utah girls are than Orange County chicks, he’d be crying in his Tuaca.
