Sold.... to the lowest bidder... Now Snowbird has the unenviable task of living up to the lower standards of Park City Mountain. Less is better, right? Fewer Ski Patrol: Can't get the mountain open because there are no employees. Too many food service people: Let's...More

Fortunate that we had 12 inches of snow during our stay. Great mountain for STRONG skiers and snowboarders... I would not recommend it for novices, not a lot of ‘beginner’ greens. Although lift tickets are a little less expensive than the EPIC pass but this...More

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

We started our day with the Tram which was way over-crowded. The tram drops you at a section of the mountain that has a winding green-blue roadway amid some very steep expert terrain. I was a little disappointed until I got away from the tram...More

Snow was awesome. Runs were superb on skiis but kind of sucked for us knuckledraggers. Boarders looking for greens and blues will be pissed off, as I was.

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.
