Venture to change.

" Climate in Utah is changing rapidly.  We need to take deliberate action now. "
— Dave Fields, President and General Manager at Snowbird

Snowbird's Play Forever initiative recognizes that the health of both our environment and local community is vital to the future of our mountain and the sports we love. That's why Snowbird is taking real action and challenging our employees and guests to do their part. We are striving to make a difference through a variety of initiatives which include fostering community, leveraging strategic partnerships, supporting local organizations and educating ourselves and others on the impact our choices have on our mountain.
