Snowbasin Resort   |  Jeremiah Watt
  • Weather: Mostly Clear, 32F

Snowbasin Resort is a perennial top ten for SKI magazine in categories like dining, service, lifts and grooming. Here's how that translates: Snowbasin takes care of everything it can control (including a new high-speed, six-person chairlift slated for Christmas 2021), and Mother Nature does the rest. Snowbasin Resort is under an hour from Salt Lake City International Airport, but is also about 30 minutes from the historic and vibrant Ogden metropolitan area. This is a city with farm-to-table dining, great performing arts and museums, as well as a fervent love for outdoor recreation. It’s stunning to realize Ogden’s backyard includes Snowbasin's 3,000 vertical feet and 3,000 skiable acres.

Make a Note

  • Groomed and smooth - Since you've really come for the downhill, Snowbasin also works its magic on impeccably groomed snow.
  • Convenient gondolas - Snowbasin's gondolas provide a spectacular ride which, when combined with the tram, make Snowbasin a very visitor-friendly resort.
  • The Allen Peak Tram - This tram carries 15 expert skiers and riders to the 9,366-feet mark of Allen Peak, which accesses the legendary Olympic downhill, among other hikeable expert terrain.
  • Plenty of snow - The resort’s nearly 3,000 vertical feet pack in 113 designated runs for every skill level.
  • Nordic skiers - Nordic skiers get a boost at Snowbasin, where they have more than 16 miles of trails they can access for free. Suitable for both skating and classic style Nordic skiing, the trails wind through snowy glades and meadows under towering mountain peaks.
  • Bathroom or ballroom? - Snowbasin’s swanky, award-winning bathrooms are complete with chandeliers that reflect the impeccable manner in which it maintains its resort.
