I a family of 8 both boys and girls ages 12-29 have skiied snowbird utah countless times since its opening in the early 70's. we have skiied in canada , calif, colorado, neveda, new mexico, and the family is always comparing the other resorts, skiing, and snow to Snowbird. Obviously their favorite. The snow is ony rivaled by their neighbors up the canyon at Alta Utah. Nothing else like it any where. The past few years, they have done unlimited things to open up more of the mountain to beginning intermediate skiers, some areas that before just accomodated the more aggressive skiiers. The lodging is great, very alpine, the nature of the materials they have used in construction of the facilities all but disappears into the granite mountains up that canyon, very architectural looking in winter, but great year round. resturants are excellant some a bit pricie for a big group, but, gosh, the resort is 13 minutes away from the city of 750 thousand people, resturants, entertainment, professional sports, ballet, symphony and an intl airport. We have time share there also 2 times a year summer and february, and we still go there other times in addition to that. The skiing offers any challenge you can handle or not. The verticle is great, runs on and off trails are fabulous. Do we like Snowbird. yep. I could do advertising for them and that Salt Lake City area. probably retire there some day. Last thing we skiied there one week ago, end of march they still have 150 inchs of snow base, but we were, even that late in the season, treated to 24" of fresh powder, dryest snow you have ever skiied. was like being in heaven, I hope. thanks kmg
