With over 8,464 acres of skiable terrain, Powder Mountain is one of North America's largest ski areas. A maximum of 1,500-day tickets available insures you can enjoy uncrowded skiing. This is the place if you want endless powder or untouched corduroy.
Even on the busiest day, you may only find one skier per two acres of terrain. Almost 3,000 acres is a traditional lift-served resort with an abundance of groomed trails and powder runs. The remaining 4,000 acres is nirvana for powder hounds.
Powder Mountain’s summit elevation of 9,422 feet delivers 2,205 feet of lift-served vertical. The mountain receives over 500 inches of snow annually and consists of 167 ski trails, 9 lifts and two terrain parks.
For those seeking a once in a lifetime adventure, Powder Mountain offers guided backcountry tours at amazingly affordable prices. This season an additional 1,000 acres of expert chutes and bowls has been added to the current 2,000+ acres of intermediate terrain used by the Snowcat Powder Expedition. The all-day snowcat adventure is limited to 20 guests a day in order to preserve the quality of the experience. Wolf Canyon, Powder Mountain's steepest & deepest backcountry, is now open to a limited number of guided tours as well.
Established in 1940, Snowbasin is one of the oldest continually operating ski areas in North America.
Snowbasin underwent a world-class transformation as the host of the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Games downhill events, adding three luxurious lodges and expanded terrain with the most advanced lift system in Utah featuring two new gondolas, a tram, and high-speed quad.
Top rated by Ski Magazine in the categories of Service, On-Mountain Food, Lifts, and Grooming, Snowbasin has one of the easiest drives from Salt Lake International Airport as well as quick access to the Park City area and downtown Ogden. With 3,000 skiable acres and 3,000 vertical feet, Snowbasin Resort is best known for uncrowded slopes, wide-open bowls, beautiful, long rolling manicured groomers, gladed runs, powder stashes days after a storm, steep chutes, evergreen forested gullies, and excellent service. The resort’s majestic lodges feature stunning views, grand fireplaces, and marble finishes. To top off the experience, Snowbasin Resort’s award-winning dining restaurants feature a variety of cuisine from locally sourced ingredients in their five slope-side restaurants. For those who like luxury with their adventure, Snowbasin Resort offers both at an incredible value.
