Topics change monthly. The guided tour is free (lift ticket is required to participate and must be purchased separately). The tour stays predominately on green and blue runs. To participate, meet at 1:00 PM on Saturday, January 21 outside Mid-Gad Restaurant, near the trail map sign.

Mountain Tours

New to the mountain? Snowbird’s Mountain Hosts offer free, daily guided tours to acquaint guests with the resort’s terrain. Meet at the blue “Free Guided Ski Tours” sign on the Plaza Deck. Skiers and riders intermediate and above are welcome. Tour times to be determined.

Winter Scenic Tram Rides

First opened in 1971, Snowbird’s Aerial Tram whisks passengers along a 1.6 mile cable and up 2,900 vertical feet during the 10-minute trip to the top of Hidden Peak and The Summit, our newest mountaintop restaurant. Enjoy views of snow-capped slopes and the Salt Lake Valley.

Pricing: Adult single rides are $35 off peak (Monday – Thursday) and $40 on peak (Friday – Sunday). Child and Senior single rides are $28 off peak (Monday – Thursday) and $33 on peak (Friday – Sunday).

Snowcat Skiing

Get away from it all with Snowbird Mountain Guides Snowcat skiing and riding. Get the most out of your time in the mountains and experience the old-growth forest, rocky spires rising above you, and stillness so quiet you can hear your skis swooshing through the cold dry powder. You will gear up and join your expert guides for breakfast before heading out onto the slopes. Catskiing with us is a great way to get some quality time with your family or co-workers, make your ski date extra special or take a break from waiting in lift lines.

Standard Tour

  • Cost: $480/Person
  • Details: Includes a half-day of guided backcountry snowcat skiing and riding.  You will meet your 2 guides over breakfast at The Forklift and load an early tram car.  The group will then get a pre-public resort warm-up when conditions allow, and a backcountry snowcat safety briefing before heading through the resort boundary gate and into our cat terrain.  You will return to the ski area by 1 pm with a lift ticket to enjoy the remainder of the day in the resort.
  • Terrain: North-facing, forested terrain of Sinners Pass and Pagan Basin, and the primarily south-facing slopes of Mary Ellen Gulch
  • Skill Level: Advanced skiers and riders with off-piste experience recommended.
  • Time: Meet your guides at 7:30 am outside The Forklift (Snowbird Center, Plaza Deck, Level 3).
  • Reservations: Required and available online.
