About the Ski Resort

Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is situated in the heart of the Wasatch National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

The resort is in an isolated mountain setting that is a cozy, pedestrian village within rugged surroundings.

Ski season runs from mid-November to mid-May with an average of 500 inches of dry, light Utah powder each year.

Snowbird has 3,240 feet of continuously skiable vertical and 2,500 acres of terrain for everyone -- from wide bowls to gladed tree runs, from steep chutes to gentle cruising boulevards. Intermediates will want to checkout Chip's Run, the longest designated run at 2.5 miles.

All this snow and terrain is easily accessible via eight chairlifts and one powerful aerial tram, which carries 125 passengers to the summit of 11,000-foot Hidden Peak in eight short minutes. And the new 500-acre bowl, Mineral Basin, is serviced by a new high-speed detachable quad to access the terrain.

Snowboarders are welcome here and have access to the entire area. Lessons are offered every morning and afternoon for all ability levels.
