Activities & Tours

Wagner Custome Skis
Beyond skiing and snowboarding at the resort, activities at Snowbasin are incredibly limited. Snowbasin Resort used to have tubing lanes and offer backcountry-type ski tours with ski patrol, but these are no longer on offer.

Snowbasin Cross Country Skiing

Snowbasin has a cross-country skiing area with 26km of groomed cross-country or snowshoeing trails that loop around from the base area of the resort. Nordic ski equipment or snowshoes can be rented from the Grizzly Center and maps are also available there. The Snowsports School offers Nordic skiing lessons if required.

Ogden Valley Ski and Snowboard Activities

Another option for powder hounds is heli-skiing with nearby Diamond Peak Heliski Adventures who offer 6-run heliski packages. Alternatively Powder Mountain offers bespoke Snowcat Powder Safaris.

Powder Mountain also has snow-kiting in a dedicated area. Equipment rentals and lessons are provided if required.

Other Activities

If you can’t join the Upper Ogden Valley locals in ice-hole fishing for perch, there are other activities in the area.

Aeroplane enthusiasts should go to the Hill Aerospace Museum, located at Hill Air Force Base south of Ogden. It houses every type of jet fighter and bomber used by the US Air Force in recent history. You can get up close and personal with a B52 and any number of other classic warbirds.

Another potential family activity is a visit to the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden. The park has more than 100 dinosaur sculptures that come complete with sound effects – scary! Union Station in Ogden houses three museums including a car, train and firearms museum. There’s something for everyone!
