A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Just bought passes for my family and got there before the resort even opened to find out there was NO WHERE TO PARK! How do you sell passes and then not allow people enough space to park. It wasn't even a powder day, just a average day and no where to park. Very disappointed in our experience and will not be coming back. ... Full Review

Snowbird is my favorite resort in the country. The snow quality is best in the world, the terrain is engaging and can get you into spicy situations. Terrible resort for beginners and families, but if you care about skiing, and everything else is second fiddle, the bird is the place to be. ... Full Review
Used to be my favorite ski resort.Had been skiing at Snowbird for years. After my last going I will rarely go again. Got up there at opening 9 am.only able to get 2 runs in by noon. Delays and TYPICAL MASSIVE LINES makes this place one of my least favorite places to go of the entire west.ern states. Now one of the most expensive. $30 for what used to be free. $50 for valet skiing which until 2 years ago was $20. Like Jackson Hole they need to start limiting amt. of people. If you like walking and enjoy waiting in lines(like California) then this is your place to go.... Full Review
Not going to Snowbird for restaurants, nightlife nor shopping….one of the best unwritten guarantees for snow on great terrain. ... Full Review
I always felt the place was overrated and the service reflected a "love it or lump it" mentality. Also, price was always higher than other areas. We always tried to vary between the four in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, but the Bird saw us least by far. If they bring grooming up to snuff it would go a long ways. Full disclosure: We haven't skied the last two seasons, now prices are getting prohibitive! ... Full Review
Parked and saw no shuttles so hiked the long trek to centre. Had to walk up two flights of stairs and there was no staff to direct skiers so I went to end of long tram line @ 8:45. Got to tram at 9:50 only to have my pass not work. Went to ticket office and finally got to top of summit just after 10. Absolutely ridiculous! We then found the only way out was down the Regulator which was not groomed. Noticed that Peruvian Chair was moving when we were on tram. After skiing all blue runs and confirming on line that Chips Run was open, we skied to Peruvian only to find it closed - apparently because many skiers were ducking under ropes and skiing OB. That ended our day on a fittingly sour note. If you enjoy long lines and lousy communication this place is for you. I wias pumped to check out the hill after all the snow it got, but it was one of the worst skiing experiences I have ever had. I will never go back and will advise anyone considering going there to expect what I got. Terrible!... Full Review
Snowbird is still one of my favorites and I try and make a trip there every year. Best snow I’ve ever experienced. Back bowl is so much fun after big storms. Lots of options and fun for everyone. ... Full Review
