New Family Zone

By Megan Collins Fri Dec 14 2018 Skiing, Snowbasin Report, Snowboarding

Snowbasin is a popular destination for families and beginner snow sports enthusiasts. With the focus on making Snowbasin a friendlier environment for all skiers and riders, we are adding a new Family Zone in the Bear Hollow area.

Davy the General Manager says, “We realize Bear Hollow is a popular area at the resort and want to provide a friendly environment in this area. With that in mind, we have created a Family Zone in Bear Hollow. This will create a better guest experience for families and beginner skiers in that area. A Family Zone is similar to a “Slow Zone,” with emphasis including no jibbing, jumping or fast skiing and riding in this area.”

  • Bear Hollow is less than 1% of our overall terrain.
  • NO jibbing, jumping, or fast skiing and riding allowed on Bear Hollow. Skiers and riders who want to enjoy those aspects of the resort have 3 terrain parks and lots of other runs around the resort.
  • Alternative routes accessing the base of the mountain include utilizing Wildcat Traverse to Wildcat Bowl or choose other runs to head down outside of this area.   

We will have staff regularly in the area to educate guests about the new area.

Another First For Snowbasin Resort This Season

By Megan Collins Wed Dec 05 2018 Basin Buzz, Skiing, Snowbasin Report, Upcoming Events

Snowbasin Resort is thrilled to start turning the John Paul Lift and open John Paul Lodge earlier than ever. John Paul lift will open for guests December 6, 2018. Snowbasin Resort has received 83 inches since the start of the season on November 20, 2018, and these early conditions have never been better. The guests can expect some new experiences off the John Paul lift this upcoming season with terrain updates and expanded dining options once the season gets into full swing. 

The mountain operations team worked hard to improve the skiing and snowboarding experience from John Paul Lodge down Mt. Ogden Bowl Road this summer. The team was able to remove big rocks, as well as widen and grade the run coming back towards Porcupine Chairlift.  Davy Ratchford, the General Manager, says, “The significant work done over the course of the summer created more intermediate skiing off the John Paul lift and will make that popular area more accessible to our guests.”

Besides the improved trail work, John Paul Lodge will have some new menu items this season including the Habanero Beef Chili, which was the winning chili from the No Name Chili Fest voted by their guests. In addition to new menu items inside, Snowbasin will be turning the lower patio into a place to unwind and relax with some of the most beautiful views in all of Utah with the Alpine Grille. This one-of-a-kind service will include delicious food, Adirondack seating, music, and stunning views. The Alpine Grille opens at the beginning of January and will be open on Saturdays and Sundays through March 24th from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm.
