Overview

The Good 

  • High volume of quality world class powder; 500 in of the good stuff per year
  • Epic rugged terrain - Expert terrain ranges from "Challenging" to "Heart Attack", you get the picture. 
  • Efficient lift system
  • Long seasons - sometimes even deep into summer

The Bad

  • Not suited for beginners
  • Small village with limited dining, nightlife and shopping 

Find Freshies: Few people head out to Little Cloud and Gad 2, making them perfect for finding the fresh stuff, even days after a storm. Be sure to also check out the powder bowls of Mineral Basin!  

Ditch the Crowds: Queues for the aerial tram begin at 8.30am, so either get there at 8:00am or take the Peruvian lift for some superb skiing at Peruvian Gulch or continue into the tunnel through to the Mineral Basin (backside) area.

Local's Pick: Hoop's is a real winner; it's black diamond off the Knucklehead Traverse that's also north facing on the upper mountain so the pow there stays fresh late into the season.

Tram, Tram,Tram 8 minutes to 11k that's all that needs to be said. This mountain has it all steep and deep. The best people on the planet. Chips run 2.5 miles got to love it. Cliffs,groomers,moguls,trees, fantasy mountain. Plus it's in Utah so you get that fluffy powder.... More

Two words: Super Gnarly. Some of the biggest and baddest terrain both out and in bounds in the United States. You can be booted up and on the hill within an hour of landing in SLC airport as well. Certainly not for the casual skier or faint of heart, but an enthusiast's dream! ... More

Snowbird is a good choice if you wanted to go to Alta but you snowboard. The runs are almost as steep and challenging as Alta, and you are right next door.

Besides the fabulous dry snow, I like Snowbird because skiers of different levels (blue and black runs) can share the same chair. Plus,most runs end at the chair lift, so there are no get back trails!! Snow basin is our second favorite.
