Snowbird is a fantastic year-round resort. It opened in December of 1971 and celebrated its 40th anniversary last year.

The resort is quite familiar with being in the spotlight. Snowbird and Alta together were named the best ski resort in North America by Outside Magazine.

You can fly in and be on the mountain the same day. Snowbird is just 29 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport. A breathtaking experience during the summer months is to ride the Snowbird tram up to the top of Hidden Peak. It’s amazing any time of the year but we enjoy it most during the summer.

This tram ride offers spectacular views up the canyon towards Alta Ski Resort , down the canyon towards Salt Lake City, and over the top towards the Heber Valley. It takes you up 2,900 vertical feet along a 1.6 mile cable.
