Snowbird, Utah – Snowbird is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its summer season on Saturday, June 15, 2024. The resort will offer over 20 exhilarating activities for guests of all ages, including favorites like the Tram rooftop balconies, Mountain Coaster and Alpine Slide.

“We are eager to welcome guests back to explore the mountains from a unique perspective, whether it’s from the exhilarating ZipWhipper® or the Tram rooftop balconies—both of which are unique to Snowbird,” said Snowbird President and General Manager Dave Fields. “As we look toward the coming months, we’re equally excited to unveil updates to Oktoberfest and to continue our work on exciting resort improvements for the upcoming winter.”

This pass provides access to favorites like Summer Scenic Tram Rides, the Mountain Coaster, Alpine Slide, ZipWhipper and more. The Tram Rooftop Balcony Add-On is also available for those who wish to experience the open-air ride.
