Snowbasin is thrilled to replace Middle Bowl with a new six-person express lift. Wednesday, October 13th - Friday,October 15th all Snowbasin trails are closed as a helicopter transports towers for the new chairlift. Currently, the loop portion of the Cirque Loop trail is closed, but guests can still access the lower portion of this trail to hike to the Ridge Trail. To access this portion, hike down the summer road and enter the trail to the right.
Additionally, Becker Trail is closed due to snowmaking pipe upgrades in the Strawberry area. Utilize Moonshine Trees & Needles Trail to bike or hike down the mountain. View Trail Map >>
