Utah is home to 15 ski resorts, providing endless fun on The Greatest Snow on Earth®. Three of those resorts are within minutes of each other in the Ogden Valley. The summer also brings great hiking and biking trails at these locations, Snowbasin with restaurants and concerts.
Snowbasin was once again ranked in the Top Ten with recognition in four categories. #2: On Mountain Food, #4: Service, #7: Lifts, and #10: Weather. Snowbasin is just far enough from the Cottonwoods and Park City to keep it out of the limelight, and its 3,000 vertical and 3,000 acres of uncrowded terrain make it the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle. Snowbasin has plenty of groomers, but the secret to Snowbasin lies in exploring the snow beyond the corduroy. Check out the terrain off the Strawberry Express Gondola. It’s packed with mellow to advanced open slopes to practice your off-piste technique.
