Impressive in Every Aspect

Snowbasin was once a local ski secret. Now, it’s a world class resort; impressive in every respect! With majestic mountain scenery, exhilarating powder snow, wide-open bowls, vast skiing terrain, rugged peaks and some of the most beautiful and luxurious mountain day lodges in North America.

Welcoming the world in the 2002  Winter Olympics, Snowbasin successfully hosted six events including the mens’ and womens’ downhill, Super G and combined events.  Visions students now have the opportunity to ski those signature Grizzly and Wildflower Downhill courses – two of the most challenging downhill race courses ever traced on a mountain! A magnificent winter experience awaits all Vision groups in Snowbasin!
