Snow Sports

  • Ski Resorts
    The participants can enjoy snow-sport of your choice at Alta or Snowbird in the Little Cottonwood Canyon on 3/1.
    • The Alta Resort has been highly rated for its high annual snowfall. It is local's favorites for both the gentle and wide beginner runs and the challenging double diamond runs. Beginner skiers or skiers who like to practice on beginner runs can purchase lift tickets for the beginner area that includes mostly green runs except for two blues and one black run. Alta is a skiing only resort – no snowboarding.
    • The Snowbird resort is popular for its high-speed tram and lifts that maximize your time on the 90 different runs covered by great snow throughout the season.
  • Lift tickets
    Discount full-day lift tickets are available between 8 am and 6 pm (7 pm on Friday) at University of Utah's Outdoor Recreation Programs (ORP). More information is available at Discount ski tickets
    • Alta $64
    • Snowbird $58/$66 (tram/chair lifts)
    • Half-day, long-day, beginner areas, or child lift tickets do not have discounts and must be purchased at the resorts
  • Climate/clothing
    The winter season this year has been relatively warm and yet full of rain/snow. The temperature at the base of the lifts is likely to be from 30's to 40's Fahrenheit without considering the windshield effect, and drop by 10 degrees or more as you reach the top of the lifts. It is essential to wear right snow-sport clothing for engaging in snow-sports.
