Visitor Reviews of Snowbird

SnowbirdDevotee from United States writes:

Snowbird is an expert paradise. It has everything you could want, certainly the best snowfal, 500"/yr) in the USA and likely the planet. Endless possibilities of expert terrain from top to bottom. Three huge bowls. Beautiful Scenery. And if you stay just 25 minutes away in the Salt Lake Valley (Sandy/Midvale) the most inexpensive ski vacation you could find. You can board a flight from most major US airports in the morning, including the East Coast, and be skiing by 1pm. And you can do the same on the way home, skiing until noon or later and arriving back home(US) that evening.
If you tire of Snowbird, Alta is right next door and then there are 6 other terrific resorts to explore, all within an hour's drive.
