Full review

For strong riders, Snowbird is hard to beat. There is a ton of great terrain and if you know where to go you can have some epic runs. There is so much in fact, that after a storm it can sometimes take several days before ski patrol has everything safe enough to ride (open). This can be frustrating if you get up there only to find that your favorite areas are still closed. Snowbird is also very popular which leads to bigger crowds than some resorts (Brighton) and runs getting tracked out very quickly. The tram line can be horrendous at times and I would recommend avoiding it. All in all, it is a great mountain and if you don't mind a bit of a crowd I strongly recommend it (aside from the terrain park).
