Though Snowbasin is often overlooked due to its far higher profile neighbor Park City, the resort has a lot going for it. While it has no base village or accommodation itself, it's easy enough to reach from nearby accommodation.

The crowd-free slopes cover a lot of pleasantly varied terrain served by nine lifts. This is a great mountain for experts - the Grizzly Downhill course drops 885m and is already claimed to be a modern classic. Between the race course and the area boundary is a splendid area of off-piste wooded glades and gullies. Middle Bowl is great terrain for the adventurous, with a complex network of blues and blacks.
The resort also has a reputation for being exceptionally well run, with great staff and service. The lifts are modern, while plenty of snow making is in place for when mother nature does not deliver. This is of little worry however, given the resort sees 10m+ of average seasonal snowfall. Like other nearby resorts, it received a substantial boost thanks to the 2002 winter Olympics, playing host to the Downhill and Super G.
