This was my first time in Utah for a re-engagement from the last time I had put on ski years (5 years ago). It happens that Snowbird was among several ski resort sites to visit. But after visiting several, I was hooked on the vibes I found in Snowbird.
I was pleasantly surprised there was a special running on classes for new skiers (which was technically applicable to me) and I immediately purchased. This included the class + rental equipment. Great value which I will always appreciate from SnowBird. Thanks to them I was hooked and will always return!
The starter bunny track was great, the two instructors for our group were very good and engaged with the students. I was able to move after an hour to the next starter slope and I could not have enough runs!
Food was bar was ok, good salad island. Bit pricey! There was in fact a good large crowd on the weekend of the Sundance Film Festival, which I will avoid next time. Although I love films I was there for the Sking.
Huge facilities, 3-4 car entrances. Took the tram to the peak and had a great time with the views and more experienced skiers engaging the more difficult slopes.
