After hearing a lot of hype, we had the pleasure of checking out Snowbasin today for ourselves and the mountain just above Ogden, UT is the real deal. Steeps, long pitches, beautiful groomers were all in play today despite the low-tide winter in Utah.
Despite the lackluster season, Snowbasin is offering a surprising amount of terrain. We skied the entire mountain but the best turns were easily in the Strawberry and Needles zones. Steeps in Lone Tree & Middle Bowl Cirque were smooth and challenging, a refreshing change of pace from the groomer skiing that’s pervaded the season across much of the west.
Snowbasin & Alta have the best steep skiing in Utah right now.
Towards the bottom of the mountain, we found grade A corn turns that were more reminiscent of April than February– but hey, we’ll easily take it over packed ice. When it comes to steep skiing, Snowbasin and Alta likely have the best in Utah and all you Salt Lake rippers better recognize this Ogden gem. Not to mention– there’s SNOW in the FORECAST (*see below).
