Snowbird: The Mountain

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. There’s ample terrain for every type of skier and non-skier alike, cross-country skiing and snowshoe tours. There is 2,500 skiable acres with 169 runs, with 27% beginner, 38% intermediate, and 35% advanced and expert.

You will be steps away from Snowbird’s 125-passenger Aerial Tram that zooms from an elevation of 8,100 feet to 11,000 feet in about 8 minutes, taking skiers to Hidden Peak and the infamous 2.5-mile Chip's Run. Along the way, skiers are transported into a fanciful world of spectacular scenery, amazing powder, and superb customer service.

Snowbird has invested over $35 million into capital improvements. These projects include The Summit (mountain restaurant) at Snowbird, as mentioned above, an extensive remodel of The Cliff Lodge, a new RFID/Smartcard ticket system plus increased snowmaking capabilities.

Alta: The Mountain

Alta has the best snow in North America. This is not debatable. Also know that Alta's terrain ranks among the elite, and the resort remains something of a throwback ski resort. No snowboarders,

Alta is almost everybody’s favorite. Many skiers who are new to Alta almost expect a transformative experience on their first trip because of the praise and lore that follow this resort wherever its name is muttered.

The terrain at Alta makes a powerful first impression. We’ve always thought that’s one of the visceral forces that elicit such adoration of Alta. It is majestic and looks like a ski magazine advertisement.

Powder days at Alta are more numerous than anywhere else, and the clouds often conspire to brew up snow of the perfect moisture content (8% to 9%) and consistency. Fresh Powder can remain well into the afternoon.

Alta has a high proportion of north-facing terrain that preserves snow well in the Spring. In fact Alta ranks #1 in North America in overall snow reliability.

  • Elevation Summit: 10,550 ft
  • Elevation Base: 8,529 ft.
  • Vertical Drop: 2,020
  • Green Beginners Runs: 25%
  • Blue Intermediate Runs: 40%
  • Black Diamond Advance Runs: 35%
  • Double Black Diamond Expert Runs: 0%
  • Total Runs 116
  • Longest Run: 1 mile
  • Skiable Terrain: 2200 ac.
  • Snowfall in 2017: 146 in. with an average base depth of 86 in.
