Full review

We had abundant powder from the 21st through the 29th of January. These were the best conditions I have ever experienced. God was very good on our visit. Mineral Basin was closed for 3 or 4 days because they had severe avalanche threats. :( There is lots of advanced terrain and some intermediate terrain. With so much powder, all trails were amazing. I am a skier so I never saw the terrain park. We also went to Alta where no boarders are allowed and it was amazing as well. Some of the trails are a little confusing with their markings at Snowbird. I was trying to find the powder so I didn't really care which trail I chose. When you have powder going over your head, it is a very good day.
Both Alta and Snowbird were absolutely awesome!
