On my single visit to Snowbasin I found the terrain challenging but "doable". It tested my abilitites.

At Snowbasin, there isn't any real reason for any long traverses such as at Alta. At Snowbasin where there are traverses, there is an easy path. At such places like Alta, it is rough, and takes its toll on you. I'd rather be skiing, than fighting a traverse.

Something for everyone. Great steeps and trees. Groomers and bumps with good lift capacity. Plenty of snow.

This seems to be an up and coming area. The lodge facilities are A-1. The lifts & snow conditions are great. It's just 45 minutes from Park City.
