Snowbird ski resort

Utah, United States

Snowbird ski resort is located in the heart of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah. A sprawling resort served by an impressive array of high-speed chairs and its famous Aerial Tram. Snowbird ski resort is a playground for those who like it fast, steep, and deep.

Snowbird ski resort’s sheer size can be intimidating at first. But it’s easy to find your groove in any of its three main areas. Mineral Basin has a lovely range of cruisers and groomers. Once you’ve picked your way down from the cirque into Gad Valley, the mid-Gad runs are a great mix for beginners and experts alike. For your back-to-base closeout, Chips Run is a 7.5mi blue run that gives you a great ride through the Peruvian Gulch.

With the terrain type divided almost equally into thirds, every skier will find trails perfect for them. The terrain breakdown is approximately 27% beginner trails, 39% intermediate and 35% for advanced skiers and snowboarders.

The ski area features a 125-passenger Aerial Tram that zooms from an elevation of 8,100ft to 11,000ft in about 8 minutes, taking skiers to Hidden Peak. You feel like you are flying above the snow-covered treetops. Snowbird ski resort has a wide variety of terrain for everyone to enjoy time on the snow. Intermediate and advanced skiers will find endless opportunities in the Bird’s winter playground while beginners have options all over the mountain to hone in their skills.

If the world’s best powder, epic terrain, magnificent views, family-friendly skiing zones, world-class lodging options and a handful of great restaurants sound like an experience you’re dying to have, then the decision to book a Snowbird ski resort vacation is a must.
