Big city, bigger mountains.
Living in the Salt Lake Valley offers big city choices, a variety of living options, restaurants, entertainment, shopping and more. Snowbird is conveniently located 25 miles from downtown and 7 miles from the entrance of Little Cottonwood Canyon making it the most accessible ski resort in Salt Lake City.
Snowbird has only limited employee housing at the resort. These accommodations are held for positions that provide operational continuity and emergency and critical maintenance rapid response.
Snowbird partners with Utah Transit Authority (UTA) for public bus service to the resort from December through April and for a significant number of employee operated rideshare (carpool) vans. Snowbird also partners with Canyon Transportation, the guest airport shuttle service, to provide a daily schedule of employee shuttles to and from the resort to locations in the Salt Lake Valley. All of these ride services are free to employees.
Snowbird also supports the R.I.D.E. program. A mobile device app that assists our employees and guests to find and form daily carpools to and from the resort, helping to reduce the amount of traffic on the canyon road.
