Who is Snowbird for?
One look at a Snowbird trail map reveals a plethora of blue and black runs strung along a dramatic lansdcape. Hotshot skiers and riders embrace the action-packed adventure of Snowbird’s legendary steep slopes and deep snowpack (Snowbird and Alta boast bases with the largest snow totals in Utah). Beginners need not worry though. One-third of the resort caters to novice skiers and riders thanks to Chickadee, Mid-Gad and Baby Thunder lifts.
No trip to Snowbird is complete without a ride on the Aerial Tram. The 125-person tramway elevates guests up 2,900 vertical feet in approximately seven minutes to Hidden Peak, the resort’s highest elevation at 11,000 feet. Take in 360 degrees of sensational views, dine at The Summit, then either ride the Tram back down or pick your poison of expert terrain — let the Cirque Traverse lead the way.
Parking and Transportation
Now taking reservations. Snowbird recently established a paid parking reservation system. Free parking is open on a first-come, first-served basis — but lots fill fast. Snowbird recommends carpooling or taking public transportation (free for season pass and Ikon pass holders) to eliminate parking stress or, worse, being turned away due to full lots.

Snowbird does not offer night skiing.
Restaurants and Places to Relax
The Summit: Looking for epic views while you eat? Look no further than The Summit situated at 11,000 feet. Accessible by foot, ski or ride from the top of the Aerial Tram, the bistro serves up healthy organic cuisine (no burgers or fries here) and local microbrews for snack time or lunch.
Mid-Gad Restaurant: It’s hard to miss the smell of burgers and fries wafting from Mid-Gad Restaurant when shredding around Gad Valley. Located at mid-mountain, the lunch hotspot serves up ski-day favorites including bacon burgers, barbecue pulled pork sandwiches, Reubens, brats and chili.
SeventyOne: Throwing a nod to Snowbird’s opening year, SeventyOne (located inside the Cliff Lodge) features a retro vibe, an open kitchen and American grill favorites including house-smoked St. Louis ribs, northern fried chicken, French onion soup and mac and cheese.
Cliff Spa Discovery: Snowbird is a big mountain. If it's your first time skiing here, you really should give yourself a couple of days to ski it all. The Cliff Spa Discovery is a great package for doing just that - book a night at The Cliff Lodge and you can save on one 60-minute Custom Massage per adult.
Spring Stay & Ski: Here's a little known secret; spring skiing is some of our favorite. Snowbird has long been home to the longest season in Utah, and the Spring Stay & Ski deal is perfect for making a few late-season turns. Book a minimum of 2 nights lodging between April 10th and May 7th and get daily Snowbird Adult lift tickets free. Pricing and availability may change, so please refer to Snowbird's Lodging Specials for details.
