The Ski Mountain

It’s a mystery how Snowbasin remains under the radar with its 3,000 skiable acres, 3,000 vertical feet and legendary Utah powder. Whatever the reason, Snowbasin is a grandiose resort without the grandiose crowds. Featuring steep chutes, copious tree skiing and some of the best groomers in Utah, its mix of terrain and lack of visitors are the main attractions for many skiers.

Snowbasin Ski Terrain

• Beginner: From first glance at the trail map, it’s clear there isn’t much beginner terrain. However, many of Snowbasin’s intermediate groomers are a fine match for strong beginners. Beginner runs; Powder Puff and Little Cat are slow skiing areas designed for first-timers. Ease-a-long and Bear Hollow are excellent trails for honing skills.

Intermediate: Most blue runs are located off of the Needles Express Gondola. Here, skiers will find a network of intermediate runs that dip in and out of mellow bowls and forgivingly spaced trees. Longer intermediate runs are accessed from the Strawberry Express Gondola. Elk Ridge or Main Street are fun cruisers with a some steeper terrain to get your adrenaline pumping.

• Advanced: Snowbasin’s upper elevations are a playground for advanced and expert skiers. Allen Peak and No Name peak, both accessible via the Allen Peak Tram, deliver steep grades and powder filled bowls followed by tight tree skiing lower on the mountain. While in the area, test your skills on Women’s Start and Grizzly Downhill – the official downhill courses at the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Apres Skiing

The perfect recipe for Snowbasin après skiing – Music. Food. Fun. Forget traveling to Ogden for après; the resort has everything you could want. On weekends and holidays, the party is at Cinnabar. Live music, a spectacular dining menu, shot skis and beer samplers say it all. Did we mention the one-dollar après ski food deals?

During the spring season, call it an early day and ski over to John Paul Lodge. Sip on a cold beer or mixed drink while basking in the sun on the lodge’s expansive wraparound deck.
