Snowbasin Offering New Guest Experience Enhancements for their 80th Season

The ski resort will be featuring new enhancements to expand on safety and guest experience.

Snowbasin, UT (November 9, 2020) — With the recent foot of fresh snow, Snowbasin, one of the longest operating resorts in the United States, is looking forward to celebrating its 80th season with a target opening in late November/early December,  pending snowfall and available terrain. 

As the 2020–21 winter season approaches, Snowbasin is pleased to share additional enhancements and precautionary measures the resort will be taking in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of guests, employees and the mountain community while continuing to offer the superior experience guests have  come to expect.  

As previously announced, Snowbasin will not implement a reservation requirement for season  passholders. Instead, the resort will aim to mitigate large gatherings in bottleneck areas, including lodges,  the base area and lifts. Volume will be carefully monitored daily and lift ticket capacity will be restricted if  necessary. 

The Snowbasin team has worked extremely hard to create additional space within the resort’s expansive 3,000-acres. These include the following enhancements for the 2020–21 season:

“With the support of our guests in following the new safety protocols, we believe the upgrades and  enhancements that the resort has put in place should allow for a safe and successful ski season,” said  Davy Ratchford, general manager at Snowbasin Resort. “We truly appreciate the support and respect of  our new policies as we strive to create another great year of skiing and riding. I look forward to seeing our  loyal passholders, both old and new, as we celebrate the kickoff of our 80th winter season.”
