Challenge Level

Snowbird is truly an expert's playground serving up everything from chutes to bowls. Snowbird also has some intense yet wide blue runs, whilst surrounded by black diamond terrain and stunning views of the Wasatch Range! Although over a quarter of the Snowbird mountain is rated for beginners, the easy terrain isn't very accessible for the inexperienced and the progression to more advanced terrain is abrupt.

Things To Do

Although Snowbird may not have a large list of things to do, the resort still offers an array of activities:

  • Fly Fishing
  • Night Skiing
  • Snowcat Tours
  • Snowmobiling
  • Snowshoeing

For more attractions, head over to Salt Lake City, just 30 to 45 minutes away.

Accessibility

Snowbird is very accessible from Salt Lake City airport which is a major hub for Delta. A shuttle bus is your simplest and most reliable option if you’re staying in Snowbird. Someone else does the driving and you don’t have to worry about overnight parking! If you have more than four people in your group or family, then renting a car may be a cost effective way to go. It’s also helpful if you want to visit anywhere other than Alta or Snowbird. An Uber (or Uber Ski if you have gear) is an option too.

Recommended Airport:

  • Salt Lake City Intl. Airport 32 mi (40 minute drive)

When To Go

Mid-February to early March are a great time to visit Snowbird. Snowbird’s season typically begins no later than early December. Even though Mother Nature delivers an almost unbelievable amount of snow, the ski resort still maintains some snowmaking equipment to make sure they’re able to get some groomers open before the blizzards come. You don’t need to be there that early though. January is when you’ll see a good coverage of snow on the advanced and expert runs at Snowbird. The season lasts as long as there is snow, so it’s common for the lifts to run through late May and beyond. We like to visit mid-February to early March, when there’s plenty of snow and sunshine. That said, if you’re lucky, you can catch a powder storm later in the season and skip the hustle and bustle of the holiday season which means cheaper lodgings. If you find yourself at Snowbird late into the season, follow the sun over the course of the day to find the best conditions.
