Full review

I ventured to Snowbird around Easter time in early April. I was a little concerned that there would be spring conditions, but I was wrong! In the 3 days that I was there Snowbird received over 40 inches of light, midwinter powder. It was surreal to say the least. Having skiied big mountains like Telluride & Taos I was blown away by the quality and quantity of snow at Snowbird. The scenery is verticle and legendary and the value is unreal compared to places in Colorado. I highly recommend Snowbird and would say that it was the greatest ski experience I've ever had. Telluride is still my favorite overall Mountain, but Snowbird is close to usurping that spot.
