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.

This resort is the best kept secret of any ski area. It has incredible terrain, views, exquisite day lodges, gondolas and everything is NEW!
Superb!5 / 5Nov 14, 2012
Beautiful lodge. Great lifts. Easy to get to. Not a crowd. Never had been there before, but we are going again next year.
Superb!5 / 5Apr 16, 2011
You can go from steeps to bowls to trails to trees and back again.
Very Good!4 / 5Aug 22, 2010
On my single visit to Snowbasin I found the terrain challenging but "doable". It tested my abilitites.
Superb!5 / 5Aug 12, 2009
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.
Superb!5 / 5Aug 31, 2007
Something for everyone. Great steeps and trees. Groomers and bumps with good lift capacity. Plenty of snow.
Very Good!4 / 5Aug 09, 2007
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.
Superb!5 / 5Apr 15, 2006
It is the most beautiful place you will ever ski! There is terrain for all types of sking abilities, programs such as the racing team and the ski and snowboard school, and the food is world class. The overall atmosphere at snowbasin leaves you with a warm and happy feeling like you get after watching a tear jerker movie.
Very Good!4 / 5Nov 12, 2005
Snowbasin has runs for every level. Plus, some great secret runs if you know where to go.
