Spring is here and Snowbird is still running the Tram, Chickadee and Little Cloud for a couple more weeks! So, don't pack it in yet and come to Snowbird to make more turns.

Summer in Little Cottonwood Canyon is magical! Our snowy mountains transform from a skiers paradise into a mecca for hiking, biking, rock climbing and amazing festivals and events.

Spring at Alta

Spring time at Alta and Snowbird is awesome! We just enjoyed a number of bluebird days soaking up the sunshine and now the snow is falling. My fireplace is glowing and I'm so excited to be enjoying another winter day and the forecast is calling for snow over the next five days.


The 31st running of the Steve Young ski race pitting Wasatch Adaptive Sports participants against professional athletes ran with great success over the weekend at Snowbird Ski Resort. Under sunny skies and pleasant temperatures, the pros were once again trounced by the adaptive crowd.
