Just a 40-minute drive northeast of Salt Lake City are three fabulous ski and snowboard areas; Snowbasin Resort, Powder Mountain Resort, and Wolf Mountain Resort. These ski and snowboard areas are tucked in the gorgeous Cache National Forest, nestled in a simply beautiful and stunning section of the Wasatch Mountain Range.

The Secret Is Out

Snowbasin—although one of the oldest ski areas in the United States (circa 1939)—recently became famous for hosting several events during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. For over 60 years, Snowbasin was coveted mainly by those "in the know" and by local powder seekers. That changed when two incredibly tough courses were set on the now famous Wildflower and Grizzly ski runs. During the Olympics, viewers from around the world got a glimpse of the ski area’s impeccably groomed runs, steep chutes, high-alpine bowls, deep-powder glades, and spectacular scenery. Now that the secret is out and visitors know Snowbasin Resort offers Olympic-class skiing and snowboarding with a variety of terrain to suit all ability levels.

The resort has over 100 ski runs and more than 3,300 acres of natural and groomed trails. It really shines on two incredibly challenging downhill race courses. However, not all the runs are nearly as daunting, the terrain is greatly varied—20 percent of the runs are designed for novice skiers and snowboarders, 50 percent for intermediate, and 30 percent for expert and advanced ability levels.
