“Locals favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

We've been skiing at Snowbird for more than 20 years. True beginning terrain is limited. For expert skiers (as my sons) it is some of the best terrain in Utah. If that is what you are looking for, ask the locals where to go - lots of great powder after a snowstorm. They don't handle crowds very well and can get very busy on holidays and weekends - especially on intermediate terrain. Snowbird's biggest problem is their lack of service-oriented personnel. But if you can put up with it, the terrain is worth it.

“Beautiful Ski Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

What a great ski experience. The snow was amazing, the staff was wonderful and very very helpful. I am a new skier and they were fantastic in helping me get the right boot fit and the best lessons I've had. Great common area for eating, drinking and relaxing after a long day on the slopes. I will definitely be back to ski Snowbird!

“World Class Skiing...”

Can't describe how great Snowbird is. Must be experienced. I always use valet parking and get a locker at the Snowbird Center. Very convenient.

“One of the best skiing experiences I have had in 44 years of skiing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

Hands down a wonderful resort, even on the marginal snow conditions we encountered. There had not been any new snow in about a week; the coverage was acceptable, but it was tough to find decent conditions on the non-groomed runs. But we did find half a dozen steep and bump runs that had decent snow conditions. The tram is great but not an absolute must. The Peruvian chair nearly takes you to the same elevation as the tram and you can get to Mineral Basin (a must for the advanced skiers!) from the chair, though not quite as easily as from the tram. Very efficient staff and a lot of groomed runs for the marginal snow days. Just go!

“Beautiful resort and mountain retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

Love the great restaurants, lodging, and recreation. Beautiful setting. I personally don't ski though my son was on the ski patrol there previously. My family loves riding in the tram during the summer. Oktoberfest in September is a traditional festival, held for years with great food and music.

If you are a skier, this is one of the best resorts in the U.S. with multiple well-groomed runs from beginner to Black Diamon expert.
