“My favorite ski area”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We're from CO and travel to ski snowbasin every winter (if we can) the resort is breathtakingly beautiful and way nicer than any CO resorts as far as lodges and food go. The skiing has a great variety from cliffs at the gondola to cruising hills between trees. Love love love it! Sometimes the fog makes for low visibility though which is my only complaint.

“Snowbasin spring skiing”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We had one last hurrah of spring skiing the week before Easter and headed up to Snowbasin. When we arrived on Monday morning it was our first time to the mountain. The facilities were amazing- very well done. After getting the kids gear on (ages 8&9), purchasing lift tickets we were looking at the map to plan out the first few runs. We were approached by a guest service agent/guide, Mark, who kindly offered to show us around the mountain. He quickly assessed our respective ski levels and took us down some challenging runs accordingly. The mountain was great, but it was Mark's customer service that will make us come back over and over. When it was time for Mark and the group to split ways I offered to compensate him for his time, but he refused and just said "it's my job". So to sum it up- Great snow, great trails, very nice facility and incredible guest service (everyone we met seemed to have Mark's same great attitude).

Look forward to coming back next year.

“One of the best”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

As instructors we've travelled all over the world in search of the perfect ride. Snowbasin comes pretty close and can hold its own with the big names in Europe, Canada and the US. Whilst not a huge resort the snowbasin folks make up with friendly banter, the best prepped piste anywhere, varied terrain including accessible scary stuff if you want it and the nicest on mountain cafes you could imagine. Well done snowbasin, a hidden gem (to Europeans at least).

“Can't wait to return”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Until someone recommended Snow Basin we had not heard much about it. Now that we have been...OMG what a place! We were just minutes from some of the more popular places but we drove the hour north 2 days in a row! Do not miss Snow Basin!
