Sun Valley ranks among North America's top destination ski resorts, offering over 2,000 skiable acres and 3,400 feet of vertical drop. The resort is steeped in tradition and is home to the world's first chairlift. Sun Valley is serviced by Hailey's Friedman Memorial Airport, located 14 miles from the slopes. By the fall of 2019, the Cold Spring Canyon project will add 380 acres of terrain with a new high-speed detachable lift and more snowmaking.

“Sun Valley is a four-season renowned mountain resort and provides visitors from around the world with diverse mountain experiences and world-class dining and shopping. Together with nearby Park City Mountain Resort, Snowbasin has an incredibly rich winter sports history and this expanded access provides two great options for Epic Pass holders in Utah,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts.

Snowbasin Resort, located just 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport, offers 3,000 skiable acres, 2,900 feet of vertical and an average of 300 inches of snowfall per year. The four-season resort offers a variety of activities for families and outdoor enthusiasts. Snowbasin is one of the oldest continuously operating ski resorts in the country.
