Described by skiers and riders as an intermediate to advanced mountain, Snowbird contains a variety of beginner, intermediate and expert terrain. The resort contains steep bowls and chutes, tree glades, long groomed trails and night skiing.

The resort is serviced by an aerial tram that grants access to an abundance of challenging diverse terrain. Powder days are a common occurrence at Snowbird and the snow is some of the lightest and driest snow you will find anywhere in the world. Advanced and expert skiers will find a myriad of possible lines and descents.
