Looking to make the most out of your next day at Snowbird? There are a lot of tips and tricks to do it right—like grabbing a breakfast burrito at General Gritts while you wait for first chair or downloading the Snowbird App to track your progress across the mountain—but none are quite as impactful as utilizing Fast Tracks

Fast Tracks is a daily add-on to any ticket or season pass that gives you expedited access to all six of our quad chairs—Peruvian, Gadzoom, Gad 2, Little Cloud, Mineral Basin and Baldy lifts—through a priority lift line. This season, using Fast Tracks is easier than ever: You can simply scan the QR code on your ticket or pass and quickly purchase to immediately speed through the lift line.

While this program is available to anyone with a valid lift ticket or season pass, inventory is highly limited to preserve the integrity of this program and to minimally impact the experience of other skiers and riders. Fast Tracks is sold on a first-come, first-served basis—don’t wait until it’s too late to lock it in. We recommend purchasing well ahead of time to ensure that Fast Tracks access is available for the day you hope to use it. 

If you’re coming for an extended trip, keep in mind that Fast Tracks upgrades are only valid for the purchased date. If you would like to use Fast Tracks for multiple days of your trip (hello, maximum vert), you are welcome to do so, just make sure that you upgrade your ticket for each individual day. 

Snowbird consists of thousands of acres of North America's most coveted skiing and riding terrain—Fast Tracks helps you cover more ground in less time so you can explore it all. Whether you're charging steep chutes, ripping playful groomers or looking to get fresh tracks on a powder day, Fast Tracks gives you more time to shred the best of Utah has to offer.
