Snowbird ski resort is an amazing playground for skiers, especially those who love the light, dry Wasatch powder that averages about 500 inches annually. Alta, its neighbor resort, averages about 700 inches thanks to ideal topography and a phenomenon called "Lake Effect”. The two resorts are interconnected.
