Offering 3,240 vertical feet of award-winning terrain enjoyed by all skill levels of skiers and riders, Snowbird boasts Utah’s longest ski season and annually averages 500". Located six miles up Little Cottonwood Canyon, Snowbird is just a scenic 45 min drive from Salt Lake City International Airport, making same-day skiing and flying a reality. The resort has a wide variety of terrain for everyone to enjoy time on the slopes. 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.
Winter activities go beyond skiing and riding through Snowbird’s 2,500 acres. Take a ride on the wild side and explore the backcountry via heli-skiing, snowcat skiing and snowmobile tours or slow down and experience the Bird on snowshoes.
While consistently ranking high in snow, terrain and accessibility, Snowbird provides an equally impressive experience off the slopes, resulting in ski vacations as memorable as the mountain. Four lodges conveniently nestled in Snowbird’s pedestrian village provide guests with easy access to the facilities. Heated outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs at the lodges and spa set the perfect stage for viewing the surrounding snowcapped granite peaks. With over 15 restaurants and eateries, the resorts dining options create unforgettable meals and offer an experience for every palate and pocketbook.
And, right up the canyon is Alta, an independent ski area and family-owned since 1938. Alta is proud to be a ski area and not a ski resort. Nestled at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon deep in the Wasatch mountains, Alta is known around the globe for its powder skiing. With an annual snowfall average of 547” powder days are a way of life here. It’s a magnetic way of life that draws the same employees and guests back to Alta’s community each winter. Come for the skiing. Stay for the skiing.
