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

The UTA Ski Buses start running on Saturday, December 15, making it even more convenient to get to the slopes. Continuing this year, there will be buses accessing Snowbasin Resort from both canyons. Guests can come from the Ogden area or the Layton area. Plus if you are a season pass holder you can buy a season-long bus pass for just $10 at the Activities Desk in Earl's Lodge. If you ride the bus just twice you pay for it! What a deal!!
The Ogden route includes stops at 21st Street Hotels, Ogden Station, Lincoln Avenue, and 24th Street, Grant Avenue and 26th Street, Washington Boulevard and 25th Street, Washington Boulevard and 22nd Street, Washington Boulevard and 12th Street, Rainbow Gardens, and Lakeside Resort Properties in Huntsville before heading up to Snowbasin Resort.
The other route is 677 coming from Layton. The stops include The Layton FrontRunner Station, Layton Hills Mall, Davis Conference Center, Woodland Park Drive Hotels, Antelope Drive and Highway 89 Park and Ride Lot, and the South Weber Park and Ride Lot before heading up to Snowbasin Resort.

Snowbasin Resort releases the schedule for Tap Takeover on Earl’s Patio. Each weekend a different local Brewer will ‘take over the taps’ on the patio of Earl’s Lodge and bring their best brews to feature. The brewers will be on hand to discuss their beers and answer any questions guests have. New this year, our culinary team will be offering grill items to purchase with the variety of beers. The menu includes meatball subs, Philly Cheesesteaks, buffalo chicken Philly and Maple Chipotle Shredded Jack Fruit Sandwich. In the spring Snowbasin hosts a ‘Brew Madness’ for three weeks in March, where different local breweries take over the taps and guests vote for their favorite.

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.
