Snowbird is a four-season resort located in the Wasatch Mountains' breathtaking Little Cottonwood Canyon. Snowbird boasts Utah's longest ski season, but the thrills, luxury, and relaxation don't end when the snow melts—the resort offers dozens of alpine activities, spa packages, summer events, and mountain dining during the warmer months.


Located at the base of the former mining town of Alta, Utah, Snowbird was opened in 1971 by former Alta Lodge employee Ted Johnson and ski-industry businessman Dick Bass. Snowbird began with three lifts, the 125-passenger Aerial Tram, the Lodge at Snowbird, and the Snowbird Center. Since then it's expanded to include the world-class Cliff Lodge and Cliff Spa, a conference center, an 11-story atrium, North America's only ski tunnel, and the world’s largest privately held collection of oriental rugs (to name a few noteworthy additions). The resort has received numerous prestigious awards for everything from its guest services to its environmental stewardship.

Explore Snowbird

Located up Little Cottonwood Canyon, Snowbird is just a scenic 45 min drive from Salt Lake City International Airport, making same-day skiing and flying a reality. The winter terrain is immaculate and the summer mountains beg to be explored by foot, bike, aerial tram and even via scenic helicopter tours.
