Snowbird, Utah

Snowbird is for serious skiers. Steep, deep and certainly one of the easiest resorts in the world to get to. Located just 29 miles from the Salt Lake City airport, you can leave any U.S. or Canadian gateway in the morning and shed jet lag with a few turns that same afternoon. Same on your last day, ski all morning and catch an afternoon flight home.

Snowbird is a self contained ski village with 4 separate lodges: The Cliff Lodge and Spa offering hotel rooms and suites and The Iron Blossom Lodge, The Inn at Snowbird and the Lodge at Snowbird offer hotel rooms as well as condominiums that range in size from studio to 1 bedroom plus loft that will sleep up to 10 people.

The resort offers a variety of restaurants and lounges, and while Snowbird is not known for nightlife or shopping downtown Salt Lake City is a short 30-45 minute ride away. This reporter has skied Snowbird all day and then caught dinner and some Utah Jazz basketball that evening.

Talk with serious skiers who like challenging terrain and deep, deep powder snow and invariably the conversation will turn to Snowbird. The resort averages 500 inches of snow per year, yes skiers and riders, that's over 41 feet of snow. And, when it dumps in Snowbird it can be as good as it gets for powder skiing due to the water content that the snow usually contains and the HUGH amounts that pile up rather quickly.

Folks come to Snowbird to ski, and here you ski hard all day, enjoy the spa, pool and hot tub facilities, have a great dinner and then get up and do it again the next day. Again, options do exist in Salt Lake City but this mountain usually tuckers out even the most fit skiers and riders.

Beginners and Intermediate skiers are not excluded at Snowbird as 27% of the terrain is rated beginner and 38% is rated Intermediate. While we are on the topic of terrain,Snowbird offers 2,500 acres of skiable terrain including HUGH wide open bowls and some serious steep trails, chutes and such. All are served by 1 tram, 4 quad chairs and 6 doubles.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have personally had some of my deepest, steepest and best days ever in Snowbird. If you have never skied this resort before, it should be a must add to your wish list, if you have been here before, you know of what I speak is true. If you have ever been interlodged, you know exactly what I am talking about.

Come ski Snowbird and experience some of The Greatest Snow On Earth.
