Snowbasin Ski Resort is located about an hour north of Salt Lake City in the small town of Ogden, Utah. Whereas many people will travel to Salt Lake City and Park City for some of the famous resorts in the area, Snowbasin Ski Resort sits close by as an often overlooked skier’s gem. Snowbasin Ski Resort hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic alpine skiing races for downhill, combined, and super-G for a good reason. It is a world class ski resort with fabulous facilities, excellent cuisine, and great snow.

Snowbasin Ski Resort is huge covering 2,830 acres and a 2,950 foot vertical drop. Snowbasin Ski Resort has diverse terrain ranging from beginner to expert with wide-open bowls, trees and glades, long groomers, cliffs, backcountry, and an abundance of powder. There are four terrain parks. The lift system is excellent giving you multiple gondolas along with trams and quads making waiting in lines a rare occurrence.

The main reason Snowbasin Ski Resort is not as popular then other mountains in the area is that it lacks on-mountain lodging and you’ll likely need to drive 15 miles away in Ogden for it. But, that does make the resort quiet for locals and anyone willing to drive up here for a day of skiing. The resort was remodeled for the 2002 Olympics and it has a gorgeous lodge with huge timbers, marble, Venetian glass, and gold. Snowbasin Ski Resort has beautiful surroundings, fantastic lodges, and great food giving it a modern, luxurious look and feel and an upper tier ski experience. Lift tickets are also reasonably priced. This resort is a definite must if you are in the area.

Snowbasin Ski Resort Notable Runs:

  • Lone Tree
  • Olympic Grizzly Downhill - fast and dangerous.

Snowbasin Ski Resort Tip:

  • For beginners, there is a pass at Snowbasin Ski Resort that allows you on two lower lifts (greens and blues) for less money.
