Summer gondola operations are anticipated to begin in June, 2021. Premier Season Pass Holders receive free lift access. Single-day lift tickets will go on sale at a future date.
Hike from the base of the mountain, or take Needles Gondola for a head-start on our wide array of trails. In addition to our mountain biking trails, three hiking-only trails are offered that lead to the crest of the ridge for breathtaking views of the valley far below.
While hiking or biking, spend time identifying common Wildflowers at Snowbasin! Grab a sheet at the top of Needles Gondola or print the Common Wildflower Sheet before you arrive.
Please note that Snowbasin hosts large-scale private events that may impact public access to trails and operations. These will be announced at a future date.
Snowbasin Resort’s single track trails are well maintained and wind through scenic aspen groves and glades of pines. All levels of riding are available from the base including gondola accessed trails. More than 26 miles of trails connect to additional Forest Service trails for nearly 50 miles of fun. Snowbasin also offers gondola bike access to challenging uphill climbs and extreme downhill switchbacks. Novice and moderate trails are the perfect choices for a scenic family ride or picnic.
Snowbasin trails are open to the public seven days a week. For more information on surrounding hiking and biking trails, contact Weber Pathways. Weber Pathways is a non-profit organization in Weber County, Utah, dedicated to hiking trails, mountain biking trails, and pathways for horseback riders, cross-country skiers, snowshoers and other non-motorized trail users.
Enjoy a 12-minute scenic ride up the gondola to Needles Lodge. The views are endless! Spot Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley below and keep a lookout for moose and deer wandering around the resort. Needles Lodge is serving up lunch on the weekends from 11am - 2pm in the newly renovated servery! Outdoor seating only. The socially-distanced dining area provides an excellent mountain setting to relax with friends and family.
Needles Gondola is dog friendly, but please do not bring your pets into the lodges or anywhere food is being served. Please make sure to pick up after your pet.
