Powder. It defines Snowbird as much as the soaring granite peaks and the forests of Engelmann spruce, lodgepole pine, and Douglas fir. You come to Snowbird for the steep and deep—and no other reason. Dick Bass, the entrepreneurial adventurer who built this little slice of skiing heaven, wanted a no-nonsense resort that would take advantage of the 500 inches of featherweight snow that fall on this side of the Wasatch Mountains each year. Sleek, modernistic Snowbird, which has the longest skiing season of any resort in the Rockies, fits the bill. At Snowbird, towers of concrete and glass are surrounded by forests, buildings are linked by paved stone pathways, and the only bright lights are a million miles straight up, studding a coal black sky. This chapter contains a thorough description of the resort including how to get there, mountain statistics, trail profiles, lodging, dining, nightlife, and entertainment.
