Snowbasin is an unbelievable mountain. It's huge, has great lifts & gondola service, and amazing dining on the mountain thanks to the Salt Lake Olympics a few years back. One caution is that windy days can tend to shut down Strawberry Lift which accesses some incredible, huge, open bowl skiing. The view off the back of Strawberry Lift is absolutlely amazing - something every skier should see at least once.

The only downside is that there is no lodging on the montain. A good B&B in nearby Huntsville (try the Atomic Chalet, ask for Wes) is the best way to go. Otherwise, you have to drive in from Ogden.
