Snowbasin is a hidden gem in the Ogden Valley
The terrain is great, and all the staff goes out of the way to make you happy.
Many of the lifts are gondolas, which require you to remove your skis or board, but you get
up the hill very fast. Crowds on weekdays are very light. Even on weekends, I never have to wait
more than a few minutes for the lift (except for the Gondola 1st thing in the morning.
The lodges are amazing. The food is as good as any high $ restaurant, although it is pricey.
One tip-the way the mountain faces makes for trouble in bad weather. The great blue runs over on the Strawberry side will be shut down, and visibility is limited up top. It creates for a crowd toward the bottom as people try to get out of the snow. Go to Snowbasin on a bluebird day.
-Runs are well-groomed
-No onslope lodging. Limited lodging close by
-Very little nightlife near by. They do have some fun events at Snowbasin some evenings.
-Food is pricey.
