Full review

the BEST part about snowbasin is that there are no on hill condos or hotels. that means those who can get up and drive get front row parking, first gondola, and first tracks all morning. i just had private gondolas all week. not to mention the total variety of terrain, days of powder after storms as outer areas open one by one, steeps, flats, trees, groomers, snowmaking and the nicest day lodges and best food i know of in america. ogden is only 25 minutes away (with all the food and entertainment you could want), so get up and drive and have the most luxurious resort in america to yourself! oh, did i mention the 400 inch average pow count?
