Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is situated in the heart of the Wasatch National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon. The resort is in an isolated mountain setting that is a cozy, pedestrian village within rugged surroundings. Ski season runs from mid-November to mid-May with an average of 500 inches of dry, light Utah powder each year. Snowbird has 3,240 feet of continuously skiable vertical and 2,500 acres of terrain for everyone -- from wide bowls to gladed tree runs, from steep chutes to gentle cruising boulevards. Intermediates will want to checkout Chip's Run, the longest designated run at 2.5 miles.
