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.

Great snow conditions. Good variety of skiing. Can get to the top in short amount of time by Tram. Everything is within walking distance (food and shopping).

there is no real night life in utah period. but the quality of the snow and connection with alta will have you skiing so hard, you will be too tired to party.

Snowbird (and Alta) consistently has the best snow in the USA with terrain to match - but don't expect a great deal in the way of amenities.

The snow at this resort was top notch. It had a powdery feel without being to crusty.
