Powder Video (Snowbird, Utah)
Unmatched accessibility (Snowbird is 29 miles and 45-minute drive from Salt Lake City International Airport), deep powder, varied/exciting terrain (Beginner: 27%, Intermediate: 38%, Advanced: 35%), a pedestrian slopeside village and first-class services combine to make Snowbird an unparalleled Utah destination.
Snowbird is located in the heart of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Snowbird averages approximately 500 inches (12,7 metres) of low-density, "dry" Utah powder annually. Thanks to ideal geography and a phenomenon called Lake Effect, Little Cottonwood Canyon powder is known worldwide.
