Snowbasin Resort is by far one of the best ski areas in Utah. The majority of skiers go to Deer Valley, Park City and Snowbird - that one aspect alone makes Snowbasin great, just 10 minutes further (45 minutes total) from Salt Lake City it’s a skier’s gem.

Snowbasin is the quintessential family-friendly resort. Great facilities. Great lift setup that allows for easy access for beginners to advanced skiers and snowboarders. Food choices are incredible and no one ever gives you a hard time for bringing your own sandwich and sitting at a table for a few minutes to refuel. Parking is close to the... More

Utah's best kept secret. Great terrain for all abilities. You'll spend most of your time skiing the bumps, terrain parks, bowls and groomers than waiting in the lift lines. If you love powder, vertical, amazing treatment, and great food, come to Snowbasin!... More

Snowbasin is the only other resort I skied besides Alta this year. It was a slow and lean start to the season so I thought I'd see how the conditions were there as the traffic and parking in the Cottonwood Canyons is getting worse each year. I made it there in less than a hour from Salt Lake even though it's farther away than say Snowbird or... More

Amazing terrain, just far enough to keep away the park city posers. By far the best lodges in Utah. Great snow, great people. Marble bathrooms are amazing. The food is amazing. The gondolas are warm. ... More

This resort rocks! The first time I skied it I was like, why haven't I been here yet? Of course the snow was epic that day too! I had a guide (local friend) who showed me the way. My First run down from the gondola and I was hooked. I had such a great run and it only got better. Never felt closed in on any run which I think beginners would like. ... More
