Incredible mountain. Using a tram on a cold day is fast and much warmer. Wish every mountain had that! Back bowls were our preferred area. So many different terrains to drop in on offered numerous different challenges. We stayed on the back for two straight...More

Returned to Snowbird after a long tome away. Really enjoyed the new to me Mineral Valley area. The trails were well groomed. The mountain is always a great time. Snow was nice and weather worked out. Note: Snowbird difficulty level is a bit higher than...More

Skiing here was a head on a swivel constant exercise in collision avoidance. No place to sit at lodge, ridiculously expensive. I’m going to do my part to de-populate the place by never coming again.

The terrain is for expert skiers but if you are such, be aware of “mtn safety” patrollers watching your every move. Constant gestures, blowing whistles and screaming at you. Such great customer service and so much fun!!! We now ski Solitude as our home base...More

As mentioned by Layton, there is no reservation needed. There is a restaurant at the top and the view is amazing. Don't leave without going up. It's $17 or so per person for the tram.
