Snowbird Ski Resort is nestled in Little Cottonwood Canyon in the heart of the Wasatch-Cache National Forrest approximately one mile down the road form Alta Ski Resort. Snowbird is a powder lover’s dream with over five hundred inches falling annually. Utah’s famous ultra-light dry powder piles up high on Snowbird’s terrain that is diverse, steep, and lots of fun. The resort boasts the longest ski season in Utah.

Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is home to many activities besides skiing and snowboarding. During the summer months, visitors will find gorgeous hikes, mountain bike trails and streams chock-full of fish.

Described by skiers and riders as an intermediate to advanced mountain, Snowbird contains a variety of beginner, intermediate and expert terrain. The resort contains steep bowls and chutes, tree glades, long groomed trails and night skiing.

The resort is serviced by an aerial tram that grants access to an abundance of challenging diverse terrain. Powder days are a common occurrence at Snowbird and the snow is some of the lightest and driest snow you will find anywhere in the world. Advanced and expert skiers will find a myriad of possible lines and descents.
