Snowbasin Resort, Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Snowbasin, a Sun Valley Resort, is a large resort in the Ogden area, covering a good selection of runs on varied terrain. It was the site of the Downhill and Super G events for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Snowbasin tends to be much less crowded than the resorts near Salt Lake City, and with a new access road from I-84, it is now much more convenient to reach.

Snowbasin cultivates an european style ski experience, complete with trams and gondolas, fine dining at trailside chalets, and cultural diversity expected of a Olympic venue. Across the mountain, enjoy sun soaked slopes, panoramic views, rocky outcrops and the Needles Ridge sculpted by cirques with the breathtaking Needles Spires.

Expanding the recreation opportunities at Snowbasin, explore the mountain's several terrain park locations, a tubing hill, and 26km of nordic skiing. During the summer, Snowbasin is a popular destination for mountain biking, an excellent disc golf course, hiking, and picnicking.

Ski ticket rates at Snowbasin are reasonable, and additional discounts are available for Utah residents via a local's only Direct to Lift discount card. In addition to season passes, Snowbasin offers multi-day lift tickets - take advantage of this chance to really explore the mountain.

The Snowbasin Ski School (801-620-1016) offers a variety of private and group lessons. Children instruction includes the full or half day "Littlecat Kittens (4-6)" and "Wildcat Kids (7-11)" programs. Learn to Ski packages are also available.

After skiing or snowboarding all day, you are bound to work up an appetite. Snowbird hosts several restaurants for seasonal and year-round dining. Earl's Lodge has a wide selection of food from wood-fired pizza and sushi to homemade pastries and deserts. The Needles Lodge features Austrian cuisine such as bratwurst with sauerkraut, wienerschnitzel with pommes frites, and cabbage rolls with German potato salad.
