Snowbasin, a Sun Valley Resort
Visitors are astounded by the amazing quality of Snowbasin and Powder Mountain, and are usually curious about its ownership. Snowbasin opened in 1939 and is part of the collection of hotels and resorts owned by Earl Holding, who also owns Sun Valley Resort in Idaho - twice selected by readers of SKI magazine as the nation's top ski facility; The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City; Little America properties in Salt Lake City, Arizona and Wyoming; and Sinclair Oil, among others. This visionary company has selected the Ogden Valley to add to its list of successes. Snowbasin is less than 10 minutes from Trappers Crossing.
Powder Mountain, located just 15 minutes from Trappers Crossing, opened in 1971 and today boasts 5,500 skiable acres of gold medal terrain - more than any ski resort in North America. With more than 500 inches of annual snowfall, it is well known for its abundance of natural snow - ideal for groomed corduroy, terrain parks, backcountry tours and heli-skiing.
This high mountain valley offers a plenitude of recreation. Awaken to views of the sparkling Pineview Lake, which lures you for boating, water skiing, kayaking, fishing and more. Enjoy golf, hiking, biking and horseback riding trails for all levels, and spectacular scenery from the shores of Pineview to the hills of Snowbasin and Powder Mountain.
Summer temperatures are idyllic, making for memorable outdoor concerts, gondola rides and dining al fresco. When evening falls, relax on your expansive deck and watch the sun set over the lush green valley.
