Snow Basin

All repairs have been completed for our motorhome, so Kathi and I will be leaving tomorrow for Moab, Utah.

Today I will discuss another ski resort in the area. Kathi and I visited Snow Basin in April 2011. Snow basin in about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City and 10 miles east of Ogden. We had an opportunity to talk to one of the security personnel who gave us a rundown on the ski trails and resort amenities.  The resort was closed at the time, except for beginner ski training.

Snow basin features Mount Ogden with towers above 9,000 feet in elevation. This resort hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics and Para-Olympics. Lodging needs are met via a partnership with Lakeside Resort Properties located a few minutes drive down the mountain.

Amenities include three world class lodges, Needles Lodge, John Paul Lodge and Earl's Lodge. Earl's was erected just before the 2002 Olympics. Gondolas include Strawberry Express, Middle Bowl, Needles Express and John Paul Express.
