For Utahns or out-of-state visitors who love the slopes, access to a world-class ski resort near the airport is one of the most compelling reasons to visit the state. Just 45-minutes north of Salt Lake City and Park City, Snowbasin Resort is removed from the hectic hubbub, nestled north in Huntsville.
Besides the 3,000 skiable acres and 3,000 vertical feet with 104 runs, 11 lifts and three terrain parks, there are many reasons to choose Snowbasin as your winter recreation headquarters.
For avid skiers, Snowbasin Resort released a last-minute Christmas sale with large discounts on lift tickets and lessons. With their largest sale of the season, guests can save hundreds of dollars on skiing for themselves, or holiday gifts before prices increase.
$40 off weekday lift tickets
The best rates in skiing are always given to those that buy online, in advance. Snowbasin is offering a massive $40 off weekday lift tickets, with prices starting at $35 for kids, $59 for seniors and $89 for adults.
The best rates on private lessons: 5% off online
The perfect holiday gift may just be an unforgettable experience. Snowbasin is offering its best rates on private lessons, with 5% savings available online. Private lesson guests have access to the ski lifts an hour before the public with up to five guests.
As the winner of Ski Magazine's Access Award, one of the most-cited reasons that skiers and snowboarders love Snowbasin is the peaceful atmosphere and lack of competition for fresh snow. Because the resort has so many runs and skiable miles, and is just far enough off the beaten track, the influx of tourists that often clog the Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons won’t trample the runs at Snowbasin.
Additionally, the location is prime for people who prefer more skiing and fewer traffic problems. It's only a 45-minute drive north of Salt Lake City — and traffic usually goes the opposite way.
Time is running out to buy the perfect Christmas gift, but Snowbasin has you covered with discounted lift tickets through Christmas Day. Save $40 on weekday lift tickets between Jan. 6 and Feb. 9. Shop now at Snowbasin.com.
