Snowbird/Alta are known for having the best, lightest, and most powder in the the US. Per Forbes, “The terrain at Alta and Snowbird is that against which all others are measured. This place has a lot of powder days. The snow is dependable and comes in a density that’s user friendly, like a stiff dollop of whipped milk on a cappuccino…We can’t stress enough how awesome the skiing is here”. Add to that a 4-hour non-stop flight into Salt Lake City, the short ride to the renowned Cliff Lodge, and our trip during President’s Week (thus minimizing days off work or school), and it promises to be an awesome trip.
