The Good Stuff.
Steep, deep and brimming with bucket-list lines, Snowbird boasts 2,500 acres of North America’s most coveted ski terrain nestled in the rugged confines of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Averaging 500+ inches of snowfall annually and located just 29 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport, The Bird remains North America’s most accessible alpine resort destination and guarantees the good stuff for everyone—from neck-deep powder to all-time après.
